BUILD.      RAISE.      RACE.

What are Bed Races?

Join us for the 3rd Annual Phoenixville Bed Races!

Taking place on Saturday, November 7th, 2020!

Grab your friends, family, or colleagues and Fall Into BED this November. This super fun, family-friendly event will raise funds and awareness for all the great work accomplished by two Phoenixville organizations that provide shelter for the homeless. Now more than ever, these local shelters are working hard to support our community - but they need YOUR help!

Whether you’re entering in the new Kids' Category or taking on the Team Challenge, join us on November 7th to support those who work tirelessly to make sure that no one is without a bed to sleep in.

What to Expect
Things may look a little different this year (#Thanks2020), but that doesn't mean we won't have just as much fun!

This year's Bed Races will be an interactive virtual event that puts YOU in the driver's seat. With a new Kids' Category and our new at home format - you're sure to have a great time and make a BIG impact in your community. 

Kids Challenge: Kids under 18 will be able to compete this year in our new "Shoe Box Bed" Category! Make a mini Racing Bed the size of a shoe box and compete for prizes for best bed by showing off your creativity!

Team Challenge: Teams of 4 to 8 individuals will compete in teams to take an exisiting bed in their home, at work, or outside and compete for prizes in three main categories:
• Best Overall Theme
• Most Funds Raised
(NEW) Fastest Raise - During a 1 Hour Live Streaming Event

How It Works

This exciting event is BACK and promises to engage the community in a fun and adventurous way. This event is a collaboration between two local nonprofit organizations which work tirelessly to make sure that no one goes without a bed to sleep in at night.

We have three goals:

1. To have fun.

2. To raise awareness about organizations who work to help our neighbors in need.

3. To raise funds for these organizations so that they can continue to do this important work.

By registering a bed in one of our two new categories, not only will you have a chance to show off your creativity and craftsmanship, but by sharing this event with your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues you will have a chance to provide direct support to programs that aid homeless or at-risk neighbors in our community.
