The Bedrace for Bridging was created in 1999 by local ad agency, Nemer Fieger & Associates. The event has grown and since its inception, has raised more than $1 million dollars for Bridging.

Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization primarily serving the greater Twin Cities, provides quality donated furniture and household goods to nearly 250 people each week as they transition out of homelessness and poverty and furnish their home with hope. With locations in Bloomington and Roseville, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community. Since 1987, Bridging has served more than 100,000 households and reduces landfill space by nearly 10 million pounds each year. www.Bridging.org

Slumberland Furniture is a family-owned furniture retailer, founded in 1967 and headquartered in Oakdale, Minn. One of Slumberland’s core business principles is to give back to every community they serve. That commitment to community has led to a 30+ year relationship with Bridging, Inc., as well as the creation of the 40 Winks Foundation, whose mission is to give brand new beds – and healthy sleep - to kids sleeping on the floor or without a bed of their own. www.Slumberland.com.
