2021 Bed Race Relay

DATE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2

LOCATION: DENISON FALL FESTIVAL

Families with children that are living on a limited income and facing or experiencing homelessness encounter challenges because

  • It’s hard to balance employment and childcare responsibilities during difficult times
  • It’s hard to find an affordable home
  • There are so many hoops to go through to get services
  • Putting money into the bank to achieve greater financial stability can be difficult

Your participation in the relay as a sponsor or team participant will provide resources so Family Promise of Grayson County can continue to help families navigate these challenges and ensure they have the skills and resources to build a better future for their children in a stable home.

Bed Race Re-Envisioned for 2021

Instead of making and racing beds on wheels, this year each team will race to "make a bed" in a relay format by placing a fitted sheet, a top sheet, a comforter, a pillow, and a teddy bear on one of Family Promise's beds. Sounds easy, right? The catch is that each team member will need to carry the bag of bedding and navigate a series of obstacles to get from the starting line to the bed. The first four team members will then sweep the bag of bedding back to the starting line. These obstacles should be challenging but doable for participants of all ages.  Prizes will be awarded to the fastest team in each heat and a grand prize will be awarded to the fastest team overall.

It's not too early to start thinking about forming a team and identifying team sponsors. The more money your team raises, the more time you will be able to deduct from your race time and thus increase your likelihood of being a race winner.
