A BIG THANK YOU to our sponsors, volunteers & supporters for making the Annual Derby a success!!!
Please consider making a donation. With your help and for the price of a "latte" you can keep the race going.
The Mission & District Soapbox Derby Association was incorporated in October of 2000 as a non-profit association for the historical Mission Soapbox Derby. Our executive and members live and work in Mission and the surrounding communities. We rely upon local businesses for corporate sponsorship, including the District of Mission.
Over 150 volunteers are needed to help organize and participate in this event. This is a community event and without the support of community groups, businesses and private citizens, this event would not be possible.
