Conquer the Bridge!
Register today for the Navy's 29th Annual Bay Bridge Run/Walk on Sunday, May 17, 2015! This annual Navy-hosted event includes the public in raising money for the Navy's Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) programs. MWR provides Quality of Life programs for our 500,000+ active duty and retired military, reservists, their family members and civilian employees who make up our San Diego Military Family. This unique 4-mile run/walk has a one of a kind spectacular panoramic view as participants make their way to Coronado's beautiful Tidelands Park from downtown San Diego over the Coronado Bay Bridge. During the finish line celebration, runners receive a commemorative event shirt and complimentary transportation back to downtown. See you on the bridge!
When you stop saying ‘NO’ to everything, so many more opportunities come along. That’s what really got me out of that bubble that day. That bridge.Chris - USMC 2005-2010
Chris is a Marine Corps veteran and local hero from the Balboa Warrior Athlete Program. While deployed, he stepped on a bomb and had severe injuries to his legs. Although doctors were able to save them temporarily, he eventually realized he would have to have one of his legs amputated. Hear him describe how he was inspired by others who had successfully adapted to similar challenges and how Bridge Run positively impacted his life in this video. Get involved and run or walk with us or volunteer to help out!
