Bridge the Gap for Girls

Bridge Challenge

Did you know that even today, girls are more likely to die from malnutrition, be denied an education, or be forced into child marriage? Save the Children challenges you to do something about it.

Walk with us on October 12th for the first Save the Children Bridge Challenge — a fundraiser for girls in need.

You'll walk 3.5 miles across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge ending at Cadman Park. Together we can bridge the gap for girls and give them the futures they deserve.

Can't make it to Brooklyn on October 12th? Don't worry, you can Bridge the Gap for Girls wherever you live. Just join us as a virtual walker.

Date: Saturday, October 12th
Location: Cadman Park, Brooklyn (Click here for directions)
Registration Opens: 9 AM
Walk Begins:  10 AM
