Soapbox Races Notice » 2020-Jan-15

George Jeffrey Children’s Foundation has decided not to host the Soapbox Races event in 2020.

We have not made this decision lightly, as we appreciate that the Soapbox Races are meaningful to many of us.

There are a few reason the decision was made including: safety, workload, event logistics, and deterioration of equipment.

The Foundation will use this time away from the event to re-evaluate it and we will continue to stay in touch with Soapbox families, supporters, and our community. As part of this re-evaluation process we would appreciate any feedback about the event from past years that you would like to share.

We appreciate this is a cherished event among our community and we would grateful to receive your feedback. For anyone seeking to share their thoughts and advice you can fill out our online form here: EVENT FEEDBACK - CLICK HERE
