Seattle Laces Up To Beat the Bridge and Diabetes
Date:5/18/2008

e Bridge to Beat Diabetes," said Brent Harris, Nordstrom executive vice president and regional manager for Washington/Alaska. "Along with the dedication of JDRF, local businesses and the community, everyone involved plays a vital role in raising the funds needed to bring us closer to finding a cure for diabetes."

The Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes competitive 8K is the fourth largest 8K race in the country. Non-competitive events included a Four- mile Family Walk, a One-Mile Fun Run and a Diaper Derby which provided fun for the entire family. Spectators were invited to participate in a variety of activities and entertainment.

Proceeds from Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes, including registration fees and pledges, benefit the Northwest chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Pledges for this year's event will be accepted through June 6 for prize eligibility. Major sponsors of the 2008 event include: Nordstrom, PACCAR, Group Health, Brooks, Wells Fargo, ClearChannel Outdoor, STAR 101.5, KOMO 4 TV, KOMO 1000 Radio and Puget Sound Business Journal.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the world's leading nonprofit, nongovernmental funder of diabetes research, was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with type 1 diabetes-a disease that strikes children suddenly, makes them insulin dependent for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. JDRF contributes more money directly to diabetes research than any other non-governmental health agency in the world. JDRF's mission is constant: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. The Northwest chapter serves people in Washington, Montana, and Alaska through advocacy efforts, online support and resources, educational events, research updates, fundraisers, and Northwest diabetes resources.
