Breakfast in bed ... on a racing bed?
On Saturday, beds on wheels will fly down Academy Street in Cary.
The second annual Breakfast in Bed Race will bring together teams of bed-racers – four pushers and one bed rider – often in wacky costumes and attire.
The event raises money for the Caring Community Foundation, which has distributed more than $1.5 million over 14 years to cancer patients in the Triangle. The money assists those going through treatment with rent, utilities, medicine, groceries, medicine and transportation.
The event opens at 8:30 a.m. Beds can be dropped off between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. near the Cary Arts Center at the intersection of Academy and Dry Avenue.
A bed parade is at 10 a.m. with the race starting afterwards. Awards will be given for fan favorite, fundraising merit and showmanship.
There also will be food trucks, marching bands, entertainment and vendors.
Registration is $130 per bed. Groups and businesses are encouraged to participate. To register, go to www.caringcommunityfoundation.org.
