How We Got Here

“About Us” seems a little generic and overplayed, so we figure we’ll get you up to speed in a more straightforward fashion….

Life is rather random and so is our origin. In the Fall of 2017, a small group of friends decided to take a chance that others would be able to get down with our crazy idea: you don’t need to be a Fortune 100 company, a massive charity, or in the top tax bracket to help out those in need. We figured if we could use the efforts of those who move us as an inspriational backdrop, maybe we could make a little bit of a difference in the world, no matter how small it may be. On a weekday afternoon run, under the bridge you see below, the idea for Bridge Brigade was born, the OG brigaders rounded up, and wheels set into motion.
