Sidney Bed Races on Beacon are back

On Sunday, August 16 the Rest Haven Foundation will run the second Bed Races event.

Bed Races on Beacon are coming back this summer.

On Sunday, August 16 the Rest Haven Foundation will run the second Bed Races event. Races go from noon to 4 p.m. The first series of bed races went last summer with a full slate of teams, costumes, props and more. The races, sponsored this year by radio station 100.3 The Q, are a fundraiser for Sidney’s Rest Haven Lodge seniors facility. Proceeds help support the Lodge’s palliative care services.

The Town of Sidney’s entry won the 2014 event — and they will have to re-enter if they want to defend their title. To enter a team or to learn more, visit www.resthavenfoundation.com.
