Bells Big Bed Race

With restrictions on public gatherings still in place due to COVID-19, the 2021 Bell’s Big Bed Race was not an in-person event on April 3 as hoped.

Because it’s important to keep that bed race energy rolling – and  keep crucial funds coming in for Bell’s emergency shelter, residential services, and supported housing programs – the 2021 event is a month-long Bell’s Big Bed Race Fundraising Campaign!


GATHER YOUR TEAM:  Pull together your friends + family, coworkers, etc. and set up a fundraising team to raise at least $125, which would’ve been the entry fee for a bed racing team. Use your fundraising page to invite more people to give, sharing your own photos and your reasons for supporting Bell.

It’s easy to set up a fundraising page and promote your amazing efforts to show your Bell support on your social media page.


Our one-of-a-kind trophies are back for 2021!  You know we can’t let the event pass without prizes. The top three fundraising teams will receive trophies and the top team will have their name engraved on the Bell’s Big Bed Race award plaque!


PILLOW DRIVE – Host your own or drop off a new pillow at either location of Re-Source York:
