Family Promise of Eastern Bell County will host their annual "Bed Races" this Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Temple at 8015 West Adams Avenue.

The Temple Daily Telegram reports that this fundraiser is the biggest one of the year for Family Promise of Eastern Bell County. The races are sponsored by Texell Credit Union, and limited seating is provided. Spectators are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs.

Teams are formed in advance and build beds to the specifications of the race. Then they find unique ways to decorate their crafts.

Family Promise of Eastern Bell County helps homeless and struggling families by giving them a place to stay in the evenings that is also a safe place to shower, wash clothes, or find online access. The Family Promise Staff helps them find ways to get back on their feet. We thank them for all they do for the residents of Central Texas.

Who's ready to race?!

Bed racing has become a fundraising event nationwide. Check out the races they do at UT Arlington!
