HELLO AGAIN AND HAPPY FALL TO ALL OF OUR BRIDGE2BRIDGE WARRIORS!!!!
As we begin our planning for the 8th annual race to be held on Saturday April 8th, 2017, we have to thank you once again for making 2016 one of our most phenomenal AND with 670 participants, our most well attended race yet!!
For those of you who have been with us from day one, you know what a special day this is for those folks whose lives have been touched in some way by this awful disease. We hope you B2B veterans will help us by rallying together your friends to join as we continue our mission of raising money for the Danville Cancer Association. Speaking of the DCA, they have recently changed their name to DANVILLE- PITTSYLVANIA CANCER ASSOCIATION or DPC. Same great people, same great organization, just a different name-and vehicle!!
We have a few changes coming in 2017 that we want to make you aware of.
In an effort to make the race easier on our participants, volunteers, timers and spectators, we are considering a new route for all events that will commence AND finish at the Community Market.We hope to have the plans complete in the very near future and will update the website accordingly.
We will once again have the 40 mile bike ride for all of our cycling enthusiasts-the same great route with well stocked rest stops!

You will be glad that you did! You will receive a SHIRT, you will save MONEY, you will receive a personalized bib with your name and/or team, AND you will help us to put on an even better race as we have a better feel for our numbers!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of our loyal Bridge 2 Bridge participants, volunteers and sponsors who help to make this race a success year after year. This is our seventh race and 2016 was our biggest year yet as we registered over 670 walkers, runners and cyclists who braved the elements to come out and show their support for the Danville Cancer Association. It was truly heartwarming to see the love and camaraderie that was felt from our 24 teams which represented 366 of our registrants! We always look forward to seeing our teams who come out every year to support us and others, who have lost loved ones to cancer. Our team competition and numbers are growing, which makes for a lot of fun!
We were thrilled with our new user friendly website at runsignup.com and our timing guys at onthemarksports.com
While we don’t have our final fundraising totals as of yet, we do know that we have raised over $50,000 which allows the Danville Cancer Association to continue their mission of assisting local cancer patients in need. We will continue to accept donations online on this site or you may contribute directly to the Danville Cancer Association at 223 Riverview Drive, Danville Va, 24541.
