About Bed Race

Join the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio as we race and raise funds for our neighbors in need of furnished homes at the Bed Race!

At the Bed Race, you and your friends can show off your speed (and creativity!) as you dress up, decorate, and race a wooden bed- all to help put local kids into beds and off of floors! Plus, YOU can directly provide furniture to a local child and family in need by fundraising as a team!
