In an effort to establish a south side hub for the Dunwoody Kiwanis Club’s Soap Box Derby, Allan Vigil Ford Lincoln, in Morrow Georgia, has partnered with the Dunwoody Kiwanis Club to create Soap Box on the South Side.
On Saturday October 22 and Sunday October 23, Allan Vigil Ford Lincoln will host The Soap Box on the South Side Rally Race for local children to earn points to qualify for an Akron race. The race will be held at the Morrow dealership and entry fee will be $25 per person with all proceeds going to CURE Childhood Cancer, an Atlanta based non-profit which raises money for childhood cancer research. In addition to the Stock, Super Stock, and Master’s division races, the event will also include activities for Super Kids, involving some special children from CURE Childhood Cancer. Participants will be invited to wear costumes in honor of Halloween weekend. Food and drink, as well as other fun activities for the kids will be available throughout the weekend, including a cook out to follow the Saturday race activities.
Whether you’re an experienced soap box racer or are brand new to the sport, all kids (ages 8-17) are welcome to participate. Here are a few simple steps if you would like to get involved:
