Bed Race at Atlantic Station returns


Did your parents ever scold you for jumping on your bed?

This Saturday, CBS Atlanta News is proud to, once again, sponsor a fundraiser where you can to more than just jump on your mattress… you can race it!

The annual Mattress Race at Atlantic Station benefits the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta.

The Furniture Bank provides essential household furniture to individuals and families moving out of homelessness, battling HIV/AIDS and fleeing domestic violence.

The Mattress Race is a 100-yard dash that has teams of four pushing a brave teammate on a bed with wheels. Participants compete not just for the fastest time, but also for best costume and theme.

The race started at 11 a.m. at Atlantic Station in the lot behind Regal Cinemas at the corner of Market and 20th streets.
