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!

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.
