Come and celebrate Bridge Day by running a 5K across the NEW Surf City bridge. You won’t want to miss out on this NEW unique race that also helps “Bridge the Gap” for mental health awareness.

About the Cause

Bridge Day is a non-profit in the Topsail Island Area and will focus on “bridging the gap” for Topsail Island Area mental health awareness. The mission is to bring attention to the ongoing need for proper education and support for those affected by mental illness.  Lack of access to appropriate mental health care causes serious consequences, including increased likelihood of hospitalization, homelessness, abuse, incarceration and suicide.  Those who are impacted should have hope and not shame, treatment and not rejection.
