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 19, 2018.
Hapmudo Martial Arts Studio once again won the Annandale Bed Race on Saturday, May 20, 2017 in a hotly contested race. Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Navy Federal Credit Union were narrowly defeated in a hotly contested race. Undoubtedly, extra training sessions will be undertaken before the 2018 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 Northern Virginia Community College placing first in this category, and TD Bank for the best decorated bed, followed again by Northern Virginia Community College and Burke & Herbert Bank.
Entertainment was provided by Hapmudo Martial Arts School and the dancing mascots from Burke & Herbert Bank and Navy Federal Credit Union. Special thanks goes to the exhaustive efforts of Carol Reuss of the Annandale Shopping Center for once again organizing this favorite community event, to Life Storage, Kinneman Insurance, chamber Partners, and all the dedicated volunteers.
