(Presseportal openBroadcast) - A Mesa Arizona charity is enlisting superheroes, zombies, wizards and regular humans to raise funds for children who need beds.
Bridging AZ Furniture Bank is staging a HeroFest&Bedrace Oct. 28 from 3 to 8 p.m. at Mesa Community College. The HeroFest is a family-friendly event featuring games, booths, food vendors and an end-of-the-evening Costume/Zombie Walk. Bridging is partnering with several local “cosplay” groups urging participants to show up in costume appropriate for any age.
The bed race pits teams of five – four pushing and one riding — competing with specially-built, wheeled beds provided by Bridging. The fastest team will win a prize, but so will the best-costumed team and the group raising the most donations. “We love the competition, but the emphasis is on fun,” said Bridging Executive Director Jim Piscopo.
Proceeds from the race and the HeroFest event will benefit Bridging AZ, which furnishes apartments for families and individuals – including veterans – who are moving out of homelessness.
The HeroFest event is open to all ages. The bed race is open anyone 16 years and older. Parking at Mesa Community College is free.
Information and online sign-up forms are at www.AZBedRace.org.
