History – Last February, Bridging AZ Furniture Bank promoted Arizona’s second Great Bedrace for Charity. As part of the BedRace, Bridging AZ designed custom-made race beds that ride on six wheels and can be raced by pushing bars on the frames. Bridging AZ receives no government or United Way funding The 2012 Bedrace helped raise over $17,000 for Bridging AZ. There was live entertainment, a block party and many suspenseful, thrilling races. The goal of the Bedrace event is to create awareness by supporting Bridging AZ in their drive to provide families in need with clean beds. 2012 video on Youtube
