Northern Lights Health Foundation hospital bed races return this September

The annual Hospital Bed Races return this September in support of the Northern Lights Health Foundation, after last year’s race was canceled due to the pandemic. 

On Sept. 24th teams of racers will push a hospital bed in a 50 meter sprint. The fastest team gets to hoist the golden bed-pan trophy. 

“Last year’s cancellation of the Hospital Bed Races was a great disappointment to all of us,” says Health Foundation Executive Director Cindy Amerongen in a news release. “Naturally, this year the excitement is greater than it’s ever been. Everyone connected with the event –– organizers, volunteers, participants, sponsors, and spectators –– are raring to go. We all expect this year’s event to be even zanier and more competitive than ever before.”


This is the fifth time the bed races will take place, with each year the event growing in participants. 

The races take place in the upper-level parking lot at the Snye on Clearwater Drive, starting at 11 a.m.
