What if you could change a child’s life in a single afternoon? What if you could strengthen your spirit and transform your community simply by showing up and going the distance?


At A Bed for Every Child, we believe all children deserve a safe place to sleep, to rest, to dream.


That’s why we started our non-profit program in 2012, engaging businesses, schools, and community organizations through a unique pay-it-forward model to provide beds for low-income families across Massachusetts.


Together, we can create more resilient teams, stronger communities, and limitless possibilities for children and their families. We can create a foundation for progress. We can create hope.


So, let’s get started.


Become a Pajama Run participant today and join A Bed for Every Child in creating a brighter future one step at a time!


For every 14 running bibs sold, A Bed for Every Child can deliver a brand-new complete bed to a child in need.
