Roomba Give-Away!!!!

Happy Summer!!!  

Which means it's time to start your training for the Danny Oates 5k Run and 2.5 K walk on September 23, 2017 and plan ahead for a great time.

As in the past, we will kick off Bedford Day and have you finished in plenty of time to get to the parade and fair. 

Again this year, anyone who registers in July is entered in our drawing for an iRobot® Roomba® vacuum cleaning robot. What's that mean? That means that while you are out running (or at the beach, or just in the backyard), your Roomba will be vacuuming for you.  And with the app on your phone, you can clean from anywhere! Better yet- if you have Alexa or Google Home, just tell Roomba to get started!

As always, our proceeds go to the Danny Oates Memorial Scholarship beneftting our local high school students. We've given out close to $15,000 in scholarships annually over the past years and hope to continue that tradition. 

See you on Bedford Day!

Roomba Give-away

Want to win a iRobot Roomba????? See below.......

September seems a long time and fun summer away, but we have a great offer for you now! For everyone who enters the 5K run or 2.5k walk between now and July 31, we will enter your name in a drawing for an iRobot Roomba® Vacuum Cleaning Robot. Yup, while you are out training for the 5k, Roomba will be vacuuming your house. Already entered? No problem, we’ll enter your name.

So, lace up those shoes, go out on the bike path for a jog, and go online at, and enter now! Our robots will do the work for you and enter you in the drawing.
We’ll see you Bedford Day!

Remember, all race proceeds benefit the Danny Oates Memorial Scholarship for local Bedford students. Last year we distributed over $15,000 in scholarships thanks to your support.

For most, the starting gun of the Danny Oates Memorial 5k road race signals the beginning of Bedford Day and a good way to give back to the community and support local students.
But for Brian Oates, whose younger brother the race is in honor of, along with his family and several of the senior members of the Bedford Fire Department, the race, now in its 20th year, is about not forgetting
