Join the Bed Race, possibly be part of an MTV reality show

The Great Grove Bed Race is back this year in November. The race will again, be on South Bayshore Drive, a move the team made last year, taking it to the larger, wider track, and different this year is that the race is on a Saturday, rather than the usual Sunday. Saturday, November 8 to be exact.

It's all the usual fun, the race, live music, and lots of action including a celebrity Grand Marshal. That's Vanilla Ice, one of the Grand Marshals posing with the winning Grove Spot team.  Each year, a charity is a beneficiary, this year it is Little Smiles, a charity that provides anything from toys to electronics, special event tickets and VIP outings to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances of being sick in the hospital, even if only for a short period of time. 

“We are thrilled to have been selected as this years cause”, said Executive Director of Little Smiles, Josh Daniels. “Our ultimate goal is to brighten a child’s day and allow them to just be a kid again. The bed race is a wonderful place to play, be alive and make a difference”.

In a new development, MTV and Atlas Media Corps are looking to create a new national reality-TV series. They are currently interviewing registered bed race teams for an episode as they prepare for the box-spring battle. Teams cast will potentially be announced in late October, two weeks prior to the November 8th event. To be considered for this, you should be registered., the sooner the better.

Tell MTV about it at MTVSportsCasting@gmail.com, include your full name, city and state, phone number, email, past sports and awards and include three photos.
