The BridgeWalk 2018

The HOPE Foundation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital invites you
to participate in our third annual BridgeWalk.

Join the fight to eradicate mother to child HIV transmission.

Experience the city like you never have before – walking across 18 historic bridges on the Chicago River.

Your support helps raise the critical funds needed to deliver healthy newborns. Thank you!

There are two simple guidelines:

  1. Walk the 18 bridges
    The path of the BridgeWalk 2018 extends over 18 bridges on the Chicago River, from Lake Shore Drive to Van Buren. This is a very modest distance of approximately 4 miles if you walk strictly from bridge to bridge using the available riverwalk and nearby sidewalks between each bridge. You can start at either end of the designated path for the walk, at Lake Shore Drive or VanBuren. It’s your choice exactly when and how you want to complete the walk. Feel like doing it on a Sunday morning at 9am? That’s absolutely fine. Maybe you want to fit it in over a lunch break during the week? That’s ok too! It’s totally up to you.
  2. Raise funds for HOPE
    By signing up for the HOPE BridgeWalk 2018, you are committing to support HOPE at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The fundraising target for every walker is $2000. If you are signing up as part of a team, please see the REGISTER page for team goals. Every dollar you raise goes directly to HOPE to help eradicate HIV in newborn babies at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
