About this Event
This year the Issaquah-Sammamish Challenge Race will be held in Issaquah. It is co-sponsored by the both the Issaquah and Sammamsh Rotary Clubs and the Life Enrichment Options organization. It is a free event for everyone!
These gravity car races allow those with mental and physical disabilities the experience of a thrilling soap box derby-type downhill race while riding in a car piloted by a typically developing DRIVER who is 10 years old or older. The CO-DRIVER is a racer with developmental disabilities (no taller than 5’2” and 130 pounds or less).
Two cars, propelled by gravity, race down the street to the finish line. Each car has brakes so that the driver can safely stop it. Each racer with developmental disabilities has the opportunity to race multiple times during each event.
DRIVERS (the one that actually drives and brakes) will race in both the 9 AM or the 10:30 AM races. Pizza is served around 11:30 AM in front of the Issaquah Community Center, and an awards ceremony full of smiles completes the day of fun.
NOTE: Parents of DRIVERS will need to fill out and sign a "Registration Form" on race day. It can be downloaded from the LEO Website in advance if desired. You will find it on the LEO website (see URL below) by going to "Upcoming Events".
Be sure to check out the LEO website https://lifeenrichmentoptions.org/ or the LEO Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LifeEnrichmentOptions/ for all the updates. And to see the pictures of this race.
We will let you know early Saturday morning if we need to cancel due to rain.
