'Bed Race to Aid Children' raises funds to provide beds for Monroe Co. kids

'Bed Race to Aid Children' raises funds to provide beds for Monroe Co. kids

The First Presbyterian Church of Monroe held their annual bed race downtown.

Groups participate in teams of five: Four people push while one rides along.

Registration costs $200, which covers the cost to give away a bed. Bed Race to Aid Children Inc. uses these funds to provide new beds for children in Monroe County.

"It's a lot of fun and the most important thing is we raise a lot of money to help local kids get beds," said Todd Hershberger, First Vice President of the Bedford Township Lions Club.

Since 2008 the races have helped 3,500 children by giving them beds, blankets, pillows, stuffed animals and storybooks.
