Snoqualmie Valley Rotary and Life Enrichment Options will host a Challenge Day soap box derby race for children with developmental disabilities on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 9 a.m. to noon. The children will have the opportunity to experience the thrill of a race while riding in a car piloted by a typically developing driver.

The race will be held on a portion of Snoqualmie Parkway in the downhill lanes across from the Snoqualmie Fire Station. The roadway will be closed with a detour allowing access to S.R. 202 (Railroad Ave S.E.). Parking will be available in the vacant lot at the corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and S.R. 202.

The public is encouraged to come out and cheer!

An awards ceremony will follow the race with trophies for all.

Challenge Day races allow children with disabilities who are 5’ 2” or under and 130 pounds or less to participate. Registration is open. For more information, contact Becky Kitz at or call (425) 445-3190.

Life Enrichment Options is a community based non-profit organization that advocates and works to support individuals with developmental disabilities to achieve their goals through supportive housing, recreation, employment opportunities, and community education.
