Nashville’s Downtown Derby Bed Race is a competition where teams build and decorate their own “beds” to race up 5th Avenue to Bridgestone Plaza all in support of cancer research. Teams that raise the most money can earn “head starts” on race day. The winning team will be presented with a Trophy at a post-race ceremony at Bridgestone Plaza. Teams that demonstrate “Technical Ingenuity,” “Best Decorated” and the “Best in Spirit” will also be crowned. The “Shining Star” award will be presented to the individual who raises the most money through online fundraising. They will also receive an exceptional gift package.
