Why We Run

Beat the Bridge is your chance to show the world that together, we can conquer type 1 diabetes (T1D). You will power more research, enable more advocacy and fund more support for the 1.45 million Americans living with T1D — including 2025 Ambassadors Sophia, Preston & Roman.

About Beat The Bridge

The Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes is a fundraiser for Breakthrough T1D - the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The event consists of an 8K run and wheelchair race, a 3-mile walk, a 1-mile fun run, and the Diaper Derby for toddlers. The event is called Beat the Bridge because the course travels over Seattle's University Bridge, which is raised during the race. Participants try to cross the bridge before it is raised. Those who don't beat the bridge must wait, with a live band and entertainment, for the bridge to come back down. After a few minutes, the bridge lowers and everyone can finish the race. Since the first Beat the Bridge race in 1983, Nordstrom has partnered with Breakthrough T1D to raise funds to cure, prevent and better treat T1D. Beat the Bridge is part of the Breakthrough T1D Walk program, which holds annual charitable walks in more than 200 locations in 13 countries. Breakthrough T1D Walk has raised more than $1 billion for T1D research and we are proud to currently hold the number one position as the largest Walk in the country! We hope you will join us next Spring for the 43rd Anniversary Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes.
