The Big Dam Bridge Foundation (BDBF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our mission is to promote the use, support and preservation of the Big Dam Bridge for the advancement of health, fitness, cultural and recreational activities in Arkansas. The Big Dam Bridge connects approximately 20 miles of scenic riverside trails in the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock and assists in the connection of 70,000 acres of city, county, state and federal park land. More importantly, the Big Dam Bridge connects people by fostering a sense of community and providing a venue for community members to engage in community events.
The BDBF hosts the largest cycling event in Arkansas, the Big Dam Bridge 100, which has grown to almost 3,000 riders. With proceeds from the BDB100, we invest in growing and improving the BDB 100, and we donate to events and organizations around the State that increase health, fitness, and physical activity. The BDBF also partners with government and private stakeholders to leverage our donations in order to make improvements at the Big Dam Bridge and along the River Trail.
You can help! The BDBF encourages others to join us in our efforts to make the Big Dam Bridge and the River Trail an even more inviting and enjoyable destination. By building coalitions and combining resources with those who share common goals, we will accomplish more with our charitable giving. If you or your organization would like to make improvements at the Big Dam Bridge or along the River Trail, the BDBF welcomes the opportunity to visit with you about the possibility of joining forces.
