About the Event

Friendly competition and raising funds for a great cause is what the Bed Race has been about for the last decade. This community event puts the ‘fun’ in fundraising.

Local businesses, friends and supporters come together to sponsor hospital beds and race down the Danforth in a quest to win the coveted Golden Bed Pan Trophy.

Every year this event takes place just before the streets are filled with the finest Greek food for GreekTown's Taste of the Danforth.  To date this highly-anticipated event has raised nearly $350,000 to help our hospital set a new standard of care for our community.
