Ridge to Bridge Showdown!

Mar 19th, 2019

Are you a Matt or are you a Janet?

You probably already know about Ridge to Bridge but if you don’t, it’s our signature annual event that features hike, bike and equestrian routes from Marin to the Presidio. Aside from being a journey on one of the Ridge Trail’s most gorgeous sections, it is our largest annual fundraiser! Motivated participants fundraise thousands of dollars to help propel the Ridge Trail’s mission forward and complete the last 185 miles of trail. This year, our own Executive Director has challenged one of our board members— who is also our most successful Ridge to Bridge fundraiser—to a showdown! Which one would you like to support? Are you more like Matt? Or more like Janet?
