On Saturday, July 27th, 2019, the Challenge Races will be in Issaquah! Everyone is invited to this free community event for those will developmental disabilities. This event is sponsored by the Issaquah Rotary Club, Sammamish Rotary Club, and the Life Enrichment Options (LEO) organization.

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 who does the actual driving and braking. The co-driver is a racer with developmental disabilities (no taller than 5'2" and 130 pounds or less). Each racer has the opportunity to race multiple times.
Notes: Parents or representatives of drivers and co-drivers that have signed up will be asked to fill out and sign a separate registration form on race day. It can be downloaded in advance on the LEO site in advance if desired.
