Looking to gain some street cred? How about doing so while in bed? All for a good cause, any cause you’d like, in fact. Believe it or not, there’s a way.
The 2015 Bed Race, back for its 7th year, is set for Saturday, November 7, 2015 from 11 am to 5 pm and this year you race for your own cause! Build a bed, choose a cause worth racing for and get ready to head down the streets of Coconut Grove against other tough-pushing bed racers.
The objective of the Great Grove Bed Race is to raise awareness, encouraging racers to pick a nonprofit they are most passionate about.
Even if you’re not racing, this is one event you just can’t miss. The Great Grove Bed Race feels more like a festival with live music, hip hop dancing, and a parade of the zany themed beds.
There will also be celebrities on hand to judge the beds! Former judges include Vanilla Ice, Flo Rida, Pit Bull and professional racer Helio Castoneves!
Still not sold? Check out this video for a recap of the 2013 event.
Concrete Beach Brewery will be on hand serving local craft beer while you dance, play, cheer, and enjoy the day with your friends, family or both!
Teams race in 4 divisions (Men, Women, co-ed, and Corporate). Some race for speed, some race for show, but all race for charity.
Here is the full schedule for the day’s events:
11 AM – Family Fun Begins
12 PM – Parade of Beds Begins
1 PM – Racing Begins
5 PM – Awards
Come support the cause….or, causes!
