Hospital Bed Race

2017 Annandale Hospital Bed Race

The Annandale Hospital Bed Race is a community-building event that raises funds for local projects and Virginians with Intellectual Disabilities, including a group home here in Annandale.  This year it will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017.
Businesses gather teams of 5 for this whacky relay race using pediatric hospital beds that have been decorated with great enthusiasm.  Awards for best decorated bed, most enthusiastic team, and the fastest team will be presented at the end of the race. This is an event that is widely advertised giving all the company teams abundant promotion as well as an opportunity to be recognized as a great corporate citizen.

Location:  Magill's parking lot, 7201 Little River Turnpike,across from Giant Food.  Congressman Gerry Connolly, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova with her team of Fairfax County Firefighters, and Mason District Supervisor Penny Gross are among the many teams that participate.

Hapmudo Martial Arts Studio won the Annandale Bed Race on Saturday, May 14, 2016 in a hotly contested race. Congressman Gerry Connolly's team, fueled by Beantetics coffee, were narrowly defeated this year after holding the title for the previous two years.  Undoubtedly, extra training sessions will be undertaken before the 2017 race. 

Fairfax Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova with her team of Fairfax County Firefighters, and generously sponsored by Kinneman Insurance were among the many teams that participate in the Annandale Bed Race, sponsored by the Annandale Chamber of Commerce.    Great enthusiasm ruled the day with Burke & Herbert Bank taking first place in this category, and TD Bank for the best decorated bed, followed by Navy Federal Credit Union's Jet Fighter Bed and the Parliament Panthers.

Entertainment was provided by Hapmudo Martial Arts School and the Dancing Mascots from Burke & Herbert Bank, TD Bank, and the Center for Dentofacial Aesthetics.  Yes, the Tooth Fairy joined the ranks of these beloved mascots to dance and jive on the event stage.  Special thanks goes to the exhaustive efforts of Carol Reuss of the Annandale Shopping Center for once again organizing this favorite community event, Brendan Murphy, the newly elected president of the Annandale Chamber and a member of the Fairfax County Police Dept, to Olympia Movers, and Uncle Bob's Storage, and to all the dedicated volunteers.
