When you run a race that requires people to modify a bed with bicycle tires in order to enter, it can be a bit of a barrier for some teams. To help out, volunteers from the Kiwanis Club of had spent their summers scouring yard sales for old beds that could be converted, and then donated hours of time to build beds to sell to teams.
Starting with the 2013 race, the welding program at Algonquin College have helped by using their skills to build 'beds' for the race. This service to the Club has been a very valuable benefit, and the Club is very appreciative.
There are still places for more teams in the Accora Village Bed Race for Kiwanis on Feb 6th, check out our registration site.
