2nd Annual Charleston Bed Race to Benefit Camp Happy Days!

On April 10th, 2011, Camp Happy Days will host the 2nd Annual Charleston Bed Race.This event, while fun for participants and spectators alike, has a serious side. It benefits Camp Happy Days, the year round program for South Carolina’s children with cancer, whose mission is to give children diagnosed with cancer and their families hope and support by providing programs, special events, emotional support and access to crisis resources.

So, jump under the sheets and roll down to Mary Murray Boulevard in Hampton Park on April 10th. At approximately 3:00 p,m., the 2nd Charleston Bed Race will commence on the backside of the park. A grand parade of the racing beds before the judges and spectators will take place before the heats begin. The beds will be judged on the fastest bed, slowest bed, best decorated, most outrageously decorated, the “What were you thinking?” bed, and the People’s Choice Award.

The heats will involve two beds at a time racing a distance of approximately two city blocks, with a challenge to be determined halfway through the course. These heats will continue until they are down to two beds. The fun continues until they have a bed race champion team who will reign for the year. Libations (a.k.a. Beer) and food will be served. The Women Firefighters of the Lowcountry "Sirens" will be fielding a Team so come on out and cheer them on!!
