The Accora Village Bed Race for Kiwanis

Imagine 50 teams racing over the frozen water of Dows Lake during a cold weekend in February, pushing a souped up bed with bicycle wheels, trying to find the fastest team, or the best decorated. You then have the Accora Village Bed Race for Kiwanis presented by Allstream.

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa took over the Bed Race as part of Winterlude in 2003, and the event has become one of the high profile events of the three week winter festival. The event raises about $40,000 each year for the Club towards its Community Service Projects.
