Gear up for the 5th annual running of the Wilkinson Wood Car Derby!
Friday, February 22, 2019
Registration: 5:00 – 6:00 pm
Race: 6:00 – 9:00 pm
We hope you’re well on your way to creating some amazing race cars!
Racers: To avoid disqualification, ensure your derby cars adhere to the race rules. Don’t forget to collect pledges. Whoever raises the most funds for their car will win the grand prize – Four tickets to a Toronto Raptors game! Funds raised go towards supporting Wilkinson programs and initiatives like arts programming, Junglesport and garden education.
We are still in need of MANY volunteers for all or part of the event to make it a success: sign up now!
At the Derby, students will be split into two classes (grades JK-2 and 3-6). JK-Grade 2 students race first, followed by Grades 3-6. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place racers in each class, as well as ‘Most Creative’ and ‘Best of Show’ cars.
Food and drinks will be available for purchase. For safety’s sake, all children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event.
We can’t wait to see your fun, creative efforts on the track!
