The Bed Race is a fundraising event that helps to raise money to provide furniture to families in need in central Ohio. We suggest that teams raise $500- helping to serve two families with furniture. All proceeds benefit the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio and donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

When you sign up, you get a personalized fundraising webpage you can use to ask your friends, family and others to donate to your Bed Race team. We'll also provide tips and tricks to raise more money.


All beds must be raced in a team of 5 people, age 13 and older. You may designate an alternate if one team member is hurt. All participants and teams are required to abide by the Bed Building Guidelines and Team Rules.

Bed and Mattress Rentals

We are offering the option to rent a bed frame and mattress from us for $25. These beds canít be decorated since they will be used by multiple teams but you should still come dressed in your team theme! Bed rentals can be purchased through your registration form, though only one team member needs to purchase it.

If you have your own frame and just need to rent a mattress, you can do so for $15. Please contact us at or by phone at 614.272.9544 x 210 for more information about renting a mattress.

Beds Racing

Teams will race at least three times in bracket style to determine the beds racing in the final where one team will be crowned the 2017 Columbus Bed Racing Champions! The Brackets will be shared Thursday May 4th.

Lego Bed

To conclude the event we'll hand out prizes to the bed race champions, top individual fundraiser and top fundraising team. We will also have food trucks, music and family friendly activities at the event as well!
