Annual Bed Race to End Childhood Homelessness
On your mark..
Get set for the 10th
Annual Bed Race in 2024!
Because of your support, we raised $27,479 at the
9th Annual Bed Race to End Childhood Homelessness!
What is a bed race?
Corporate and community teams of five people build their beds and compete for the top spots in creativity, fundraising and, of course, speed on the racetrack!
Schedule of Events
FOOD, FUN AND GAMES
How does it work?
Teams of five (5), four (4) racers and one (1) rider, race a bed on wheels down a 100-yard track. Bed must adhere to guidelines.
Youth (middle and high school age groups) and adult teams (18+) are accepted.
The entry fee for teams is $100.00 to be paid at the time of registration.
Teams choose their own theme to decorate the bed and participants are encouraged to dress along with the chosen bed theme.
Teams advance through a series of heats and some serious fun!
To register your team, follow the link and select "Start a Fundraiser"
Fill out your information and make the "Title" your team's name
Select "Create Fundraiser" and it will take you to your team's fundraising page
Share the link to your fundraising page with your team, friends and on social media
You can pay the $100 team registration fee right on your fundraising page, just like you are making a donation
We ask that each team member raise an additional $150 each to benefit Family Promise of Gainesville and help end childhood homelessness in our community
Prizes are awarded to teams for fastest bed, best bed construction and design, best overall theme (based on bed and participant costumes), people's choice (based on event day support) and the biggest trophy goes to the highest fundraising team.
