Bridge of Promise, now in its eighth year, has expanded its programming with Bridge Academy, a year-round program focused on building educational and social skills for young adults with disabilities. To raise funds for the new program, which launched Sept. 3 in Carnation, organizers are hosting a 5K fun run, the Run, Walk & Roll, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 at Snoqualmie’s Centennial Fields Park.

Register by Saturday, Oct. 6 for the event, which will include live music, food, drink and prizes for the best costumes. Cost is $50, or $35 for families, clients and employees of the Special Care Agency. Participants receive a T-shirt, a bratwurst, and a beverage.

Organizers hope to bring in 200 participants, which would raise enough to fully fund the Bridge Academy’s transportation outings.  To register, visit www.bridgeofpromise.org. For more information, call (425) 549-0500, or send e-mail to contact@bridgeofpromise.org.
