Seven more teams have signed up, making it 12 so far.

“We still have some spots left, so we are encouraging teams who are thinking about signing up to do it now, while there’s still room,” says Elaine Hughesman, who is helping organize this year’s event.

The Bed Races on Beacon are a fundraiser for the Rest Haven Foundation. They take place Sunday, August 28 from 12 to 4 p.m.
