Stephanie Peat says she saw the bed race stories in the Peninsula News Review and knew the event was something she and her co-workers had to be involved with.
Peat is the Team Captain of the Racing Realtors® a bed race team comprised of staff with DFH from throughout Greater Victoria and Sidney. Peat said the company is always looking for community events in which to be involved — and this was the perfect fit.
“We’re very involved in the local communities we represent,” she said. “We live and work in these communities.”
Megan John, managing broker for DFH, says she thinks the bed races will be a lot of fun — and it’s being done for a good cause, the palliative care facility at Sidney’s Rest Haven Lodge.
A fundraiser for palliative care services, Bed Races on Beacon has a full slate of 20 teams (with waiting list). The event promises to be a lot of fun — with full costumes and perhaps even a surprise or two.
Bed Races on Beacon take place Sun., Aug. 17 between 12 and 4 p.m. on Beacon Avenue in Sidney.
Races go between Fifth and Third streets.
