without banging into the bed as they are running

Consider enlisting family/friends or neighborhoods to help with

the construction and cost of the bed

You can also use this opportunity as a fundraiser to support your
favorite charity by asking people to pledge $$ in hopes that you
will win and create your bed around that charity’s initiative.
