Think you're ready to race? Then this is the page for you! Read carefully and make sure you've got everything to need to join in on the fun.

We'd suggest starting by reading over the event rules here!


Entry Checklist:

  1. Read the rules, Here!

  2. Complete the entry from below.

  3. Sign the waiver and send it in.

  4. Pay your entry fee as instructed below.

  5. Find a bed, and get creative!

 

All part of an entry must be completed and recieved by

9PM on September 23, 2018.


How much does an entry cost?

Companies and/or individuals can sponsor and/or create beds for the race.   A team consists of 5 members, 4 pushers and 1 bed rider.  There is a $100 Entry fee/bed. The Fundraising goal is for each team member to get 10 people to sponsor them at $20 each. 5 members x $200 sponsored each = $1000 Funds raised/team.  Individuals or companies can sponsor the entire bed.

What will the funds earned be used for?

As you can imagine, it takes a lot of cash flow to operate a homeless outreach program.  We need to purchase a van, furnish and maintain a Day Center and provide for a full time Director as well as a part time Case Manager.
