Challenge Series Races

The Rotary Club of Lynnwood Challenge Series Race


Our second annual Rotary Club of Lynnwood’s Challenge Series Derby Race is scheduled for Sunday, June 4th, 2017; we are hoping that you will want to join in the fun. The event will be held at the Lynnwood Transit Center Park n Ride from 9-2 pm and it is free. Volunteers sign in at 7:00 am.

This terrific event allows participants with disabilities to experience the fun of a soapbox derby race, and each child will enjoy the thrill of victory!

For the race, two children climb into the seat of a sleek soapbox derby-style car. With the slam of the starting gate, the car’s wheels begin to turn. As gravity kicks in, the two-seater dashes along with the non-disabled child at the wheel and the co-driver with the disability at their side. Both driver and co-driver are an integral part of the team, and the ride is fun for everyone!

The Rotary Club of Lynnwood is partnering with the City of Lynnwood, Community Transit, Edmonds School District and LEO, Life Enrichment Options. LEO is a nonprofit that advocates for and works to support individuals with developmental disabilities to achieve their goals through supportive housing, recreation, employment opportunities and community education. LEO is donating the soap box derby

Cars for Rotary’s use.  Join in the fun, Sunday, June 4th as one of our event sponsors, community spectator, driver, co-driver  or volunteer.  Help bring a smile, a terrific sense of pride and accomplishment to a child from our community! View photos from last year’s event.
