Breakfast In Bed Race


Breakfast In Bed Race

What:  Fast beds rolling down the quaint streets of Cary, great costumes and entertainment.

Why:  Because you can help area cancer patients in need while cheering on your favorite bed…and because it’s fun!

Time:  Event opens at 8:30am.  Beds can be dropped off between 8:30am-9:30am. Parade begins at 10:00am ~ Races will start immediately following the parade.


All proceeds will go directly to help cancer patients and their families through the Caring Community Foundation’s patient assistance program.
