Challenge Series

Everyone Wins in Virtual Challenge Race

 The 29th Annual Rotary Sunrise Challenge Series Race will be held virtually on Oct. 30, 2021, at 10:00 am in the multi-purpose room at Oak Harbor Lutheran Church, 1253 NW 2nd Ave. in Oak Harbor. It will be broadcast on Facebook live and YouTube. The race is hosted by the Rotary Club of North Whidbey Island Sunrise.

 The Virtual Challenge race pits decorated pinewood derby cars, sponsored by local businesses and individuals.  The official pinewood race cars are being borrowed from our local scouts who will be racing the official cars on an indoor track.  Funds will provide grants to local children and young adults challenged with special needs. Whidbey Sunrise Rotary Club administers the grant program. 

  Students and family members at the Oak Harbor Hand-in-Hand Early Learning Center and   Exceptional Family Members program are decorating special wood cars to celebrate the race.   Their custom cars will be displayed in the race video and each child will receive a thank-you recognition certificate.

  • FIRST: Pick up your derby car at the Chamber of Commerce in Oak Harbor or at the Fleet & Family Support Center to decorate however you desire.  You can use markers, crayons, paint, stickers, sparkles and anything else you can attach to the car.  

  • SECOND: Bring your unique car back to the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce or the Fleet & Family Support Center NO LATER than October 20, 2021. We will take a picture of you with your car or just your car, your choice.

  • THIRD: The cars will be viewed to be given a category.

  • FOURTH:  You can pick up your categorized car with its certificate or ribbon at the Chamber of Commerce in Oak Harbor or at the Fleet & Family Support Center after October 28th.

 The Challenge Day Race is an annual event. It would not be possible without the vision of longtime Issaquah resident Leo Finnegan. Leo, the father of an adult son with a disability, brought the idea of continuing this type of race which Puget Power originally offered.  

 Everyone wins at the end of the day!
