LEO set to host annual Challenge Series Race

LEO hosts annual Challenge Series Race at Discovery Elementary

Life Enrichment Options (LEO) will be hosting its annual Challenge Series Race on Aug. 11 at Discovery Elementary in Sammamish.

This gravity car race allows those with mental or physical disabilities the experience of a thrilling soapbox derby-type 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 mental or physical 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 racer has the opportunity to race multiple times during the event. Lunch and an awards ceremony full of smiles complete the day of fun. This free event is designed for the whole family, and every child is a winner.

There will be two race sessions: 9:00-10:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Visit www.lifeenrichmentoptions.org for race information. There are two ways to register: Send an email to RSVP at lifeenrichmentoptions.org and give the name of the co-driver, which race location and session he/she wants to race in. Waiver to be filled out onsite. Print form from the LEO website, fill it out and return by email or send the form by regular mail to: LEO, PO Box 117, Issaquah, WA 98027-0006.
