Event Description

Downtown Derby Bed Race

The T.J. Martell Foundation Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC) will present the third annual “Downtown Derby Bed Race” on May 5 with kickoff at 10 a.m. The event benefits cancer research and netted over $90,000 last year. Team registration is now open at bedracenashville.com.

The “Downtown Derby Bed Race” is a competition in which teams build and decorate their own beds to race up 5th Avenue to Bridgestone Arena Plaza, all in support of cancer research. Teams that raise the most money can earn “head starts” on race day. Exciting prizes will be awarded to the winning team at a post-race ceremony outside of Bridgestone Arena. Additional awards will be presented for “Best Decorated” and “Best in Spirit.” The "Shining Star" award will be presented to the individual who raises the most money through online fundraising.

Schedule (rain or shine):

• Team check-in: 8 a.m.
• Parade of beds: 9:30 a.m.
• Race begins: 10 a.m.



May, 5 @ 10:00 am
