Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care Society is looking for teams to compete in a BED RACE on September 07, 11:30-1:30 at the CRA during the Brooks Show and Shine Event.
We challenge you to come up with a team of four, to “race” these beds in front of the Main Entrance to the CRA, two at a time in a TIMED competition. Guaranteed to run two heats.
To enter you need four able bodied, hard running, individuals, wearing their own distinctive attire, and have filled the team pledge sheet to a minimum of $100.00.
Though no “humans” can be in the stretchers, feel free to bring your own “mascot”.
Challenge another company, another department, another club or group of friends. Come for the fun and run for our palliative care patients in our communities. The more pledges you get, the more we can do for our communities.
