AUGUST 26 BED RACES ON BEACON, 1 - 3 PM
Join us in raising funds for Sidney’s Peninsula Youth Clinic at this high-octane, fun-packed afternoon for all the family! Twelve teams of 5 racers (4 pushing, 1 in the bed) will race in heats to find the fastest hospital bed on the Peninsula! We will be encouraging costumes, friendly-rivalry and big displays of team spirit for this community event. Help the Foundation support the newly opened Peninsula Medical Youth Health Clinic in Sidney.
On the day we need big crowds to cheer on the racers. Beacon Avenue will be closed between 5th and 3rd streets to allow spectators, the judging table and room for a Family Fun Zone and food available to purchase (concession by Island Culinary Service). We expect a full festival atmosphere and look forward to seeing you there supporting your favourite team!
