Join us for our 6th Annual Bed Race to benefit Family Promise. You can make a difference in the lives of children and their families in Effingham County facing homelessness. By supporting our annual Bed Race, you are ensuring that these families have a bed to sleep in and warm meals every day. Our Bed Race is a short competitive, fun-filled race of twin beds repurposed with wheels. Teams are composed of five people: four pushers and one rider race their beds down a street. Racing distance is about two blocks with multiple heats or timed races. Costumes and themes for each bed bring the event to life for the participants and the crowds. Signage is encouraged to give recognition to your group or sponsorship. This is part of the fun! Name your bed, decorate it with all your favorite colors and come have a blast!
