Featured Description (from the owner)
Family Promise of Gainesville is hosting the 8th Annual Bed Race to End Childhood Homelessness. This year’s race will take place on Saturday, February 26 at Trinity United Methodist Church from 9 a.m. to noon and is free to attend.
Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe will serve as a guest judge for this 100-yard dash of beds on wheels and award teams with trophies for categories like fastest time and best bed design and construction. The Bed Race is a fun-filled local event that highlights what families without housing go through each week.
Family Promise invites the community to come cheer on the 15 teams racing this year and to compete in games like pancake flipping, bed making and photo contests. There will be face painting, as well as great raffles and prizes from local businesses.
This annual event is the primary fundraiser for Family Promise of Gainesville, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides shelter, meals and case management to homeless children and their families in our community.
