Beds for Beaumont!

19 March, 2017

Beds for Beaumont is a our new fundraising challenge which invites corporates to sign-up a team of five participants in a competitive hospital bed race to raise funds for elecrtic beds on the wards of Beaumont Hospital. The bed push will take place as part of the 2017 St Patrick's Day Festival Weekend programme.

Beginning at 10.30am on Sunday 19th March, corporate teams are invited to sign up to race our specially adapted beds along St Stephen's Green South against the back drop of the Dept of Foreign Affairs and Newman House.

This slightly ‘whacky’ and fun event, will see ten corporate teams - five people on each - race with a specially adapted hospital bed over the course distance with a stop along the way to pick up a ‘dummy’ patient. Two teams will compete against each other in each of five timed heats and the two fastest winners from these heats will qualify to go “bed to bed” in the Beds for Beaumont final!

The whole of the proceedings should take no more than 45mins at most.
