Bed Race To Aid Children

The “Bed Race To Aid Children, Inc.” is a 501c(3) set up to raise funds in support of the “Now I Lay Me Down” bed program, a ministry of The First Presbyterian Church of Monroe, Michigan.


                    The Event

The annual Bed Race to Aid Children’s signature event is the actual Bed Race where various community teams come together to race beds. Teams of five race decorated beds through downtown Monroe in an effort to have the fastest time while raising funds to support the “Now I Lay Me Down” bed ministry. It is a fun event which attracts hundreds of community members to participate and watch.

 We invite you to partner with us to help these children. You can assist with sponsorship, form a team to race, run, walk, skip or crawl; you can seek donations, assist with our fundraising efforts, purchase items such as pillows and bedding, or volunteer your time to deliver beds.


                Our Goal

This year our fund raising goal is $50,000



There are no administrative costs and every dollar collected stays in the Monroe community and goes to buy beds and associated items for the children.


Please help, the children need you!
