The Running of the Beds

Saturday, April 6th, 2024

Join us for Flourish Furniture Bank’s first annual bed race! 

Running of the Beds is a festival open to the public that brings attention to Flourish’s need for beds and will also create a visually stimulating way for the community to tie what we do with our name. The main event will be a bed race in which teams create their own bed on wheels and race for prizes. There will also be food trucks on site, smaller bed-related games, a partner agency booth fair, and live music/entertainment. The festival is free to attend for the public. Each bed racing team will raise a target goal of $500 through contributions to their individual campaign. 

Date: Saturday, April 6th, 2024 

Location: Grandview First Baptist Church, 1416 Main St, Grandview, MO 64030
