Teams comprised of 4 members; 4 pushing the bed with a 150 pound ‘sandbag bedbug’ on it, will race 50 meter sprints to the finish line while dressed in themed costumes and/or corporate gear. Races are executed in randomly drawn head-to-head heats. All teams are guaranteed two races with the fastest teams advancing. The beds and bedbugs are supplied.  It isn’t all about the speed. We RACE for FUN and RAISE for HEALTH. In addition to the fastest team, prizes will be awarded for Team Spirit, Most Funds Raised Individual and Most Funds Raised Team. All teams must raise a minimum of $2,000.
