What is "Team Bridge?"
All runners in the 2017 Run For Our Future race are given the option to be part of Team Bridge. This is a team of people who have chosen to raise funds through their run for The Bridge. Each runner gets a personal fundraising website and can simply share it on social media and with family/friends. Any funds that come in through the site go to supporting The Bridge's goal of funding the summer youth activities.
