    Team Registration Opens for Bed Race Nashville 2019

    The fourth annual Bed Race Nashville, presented by the T.J. Martell Foundation Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC) happens May 7 in Nashville. The race starts at 5 PM and, once again, benefits cancer research.

    Bed Race Nashville is a fun competition where teams build and decorate beds to race. It happens at 740 Cowan Street and last year they raised over $70,000 for cancer research! Teams compete even before the event to see who can raise the most money. The ones that raise the most earn “head starts” on race day.

    “I want to be part of the generation who puts Cancer to Bed,” Kindal Jumper, YPAC Treasurer, says. “The bed race is different than most fundraisers and that is what I love about it. Teams get together, build beds and then put them to action in a race. As a cancer survivor myself anything to help raise money for cancer research — count me in!”

    The race in itself is a lot of fun but there are also prizes for the winning team. The post-race ceremony includes the award ceremony for the winner as well as Best Decorated, Best in Spirit and Shining Star. The ceremony also includes food and drinks provided by Jim ‘n Nicks BBQ & Brews.

    Team registration is now open. Do that, learn more, donate to a team or get involved here.
