Running for a Cause

In January, 2021, Tyler Barrett and Brandon Lott ran 131 miles from Conyers, Georgia to Columbus, Georgia over three days to raise money for SHP. At the end of their journey, Tyler and Brandon delivered beds to kids who were sleeping on the floor and saw the joy on those kids’ faces. Now, Tyler wants to up the ante by running three ultra-marathons as part of the Triple Crown of 200s — the ultimate ultra challenge! More importantly, Tyler hopes to raise awareness about child bedlessness as well as raise money to get kids off the floor and into their very own beds.

We are excited to support Tyler as he endures not one, not two, but three 200+ mile races to help us ensure NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN! If interested, please consider sponsoring Tyler’s runs.

About SHP

At SHP, we fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs. When it was brought to our attention that the need for beds went far beyond our own neighborhoods, we stepped up and took initiative. We’re a national organization answering the call to a national problem. If a child needs a bed, we want to make sure they get one. No kid sleeps on the floor in our town®.
