Soapbox Races 2019 » 2019-May-14

The Soapbox Races are BACK!


We cannot thank everyone enough for another FANTASTIC year at the Soapbox Races! Together, we raised over $37,000 partners for George Jeffrey Children's Foundation with a special donation going toward event guest charity Boys & Girls Clubs of Thunder Bay. 

Proudly presented by Best Western Plus Dryden Hotel & ConferenceCentre, LiUNA Local 607, and SNAPP Paramedic, the 2019 event saw beautiful weather, passionate racers, excited families, and an incredible community of support. 

Participants enjoyed a full day of racing, while families got to sit  back and enjoy the Fun Zone, presented by Bombardier. The Fun Zone included free activities for children including bouncey castles, clowns, crafts, a bubble zone and much more! 

Local food vendors were also onsite offering up delicious treats. Thank you to Daytonas/Centennial Kiwanis of Thunder Bay, Epic Cones, and Pop's Kettle Corn.

It was a day filled with many memories and fun, all in support of two great charities.
