Challenge Day Race, Soap Box Derby Races!

Posted Aug 07 2009 12:19pm
This first half of our day Saturday was doing this fun event! Alana had a blast once it was time to actually race.. that girl takes after her Grandma and has no patience! Maybe in a few years Kaila can be her able bodied driver!!

(below is quoted from their website)




This high-spirited event, held annually in July, pairs developmentally disabled individuals with young, able-bodied drivers (usually 12 and under) for soap box derby races down 2nd Ave in Issaquah. Challenge Day also provides adaptive cycling for those who might never otherwise ride a bike. Success of this special day is measured in both miles and smiles!
























First race, she went on a total of 4 but the second one she crashed into the curb :-P.








Kaila found a doggy...






She was so excited to be in the Police Car, that was by far her favorite :-).







Getting towed back up :-)


And for fun a policeman and a fire chief in their respective cars lol.. The fire one was supposed to be a firefighter but right as he was getting in it they got a call and had to leave.. the policemen called them chickens when they were leaving!



Testing out the big Trike



Testing another one but she was just a tad too short.


Testing another one.. that you peddle with your hands but again just a tad too short.


So we rode this one.. she sat and I did all the work it was quite fun actually! See Kaila behind us??










Her trophy!
