We hope you will consider joining us in celebrating the life journeys of the residents of our homes and others we serve who live each day with a developmental disability. Our celebration, titled "It's About the Journey", is a fundraising luncheon taking place on October 22, 2013, at 11:30 am, at the Pickering Barn in Issaquah.
LEO is committed to continue our efforts to support and advocate for those with developmental disabilities to achieve their life style goals through supportive housing, recreation and employment opportunities, and community education. We have been able to achieve our past goals through partnerships and collaborations developed from our caring community, and you are part of that caring community.
We welcome you as a guest, as a table captain, as a sponsor, or as a donor at this joyous celebration. Please join us as we are inspired together by the work we can accomplish in the future.

We have a heartwarming program planned which will include some of the many people with disabilities that we serve.
And, we also have some incredible raffle prizes that will be up for grabs, including:
Each summer, Life Enrichment Options and various service clubs bring the Challenges Series Races to town!
The Challenge Series Races are a popular summer event for families with special needs children. Gravity car races are held in partnership with Rotary clubs in Issaquah, Sammamish and Snoqualmie Valley, and with other service clubs in other cities around the state.
The races are a way for the families of special needs kids to enjoy a fun day surrounded by other families with children with special needs, as well as supportive community members.
The races allow those with disabilities who are 5'-2" or under and 130 pounds or less, a chance to experience the thrill of a soap box derby-type race while riding in a car piloted by a typically developing driver. Lunch and an awards ceremony full of smiles completes the day of fun.
The races give children with developmental disabilities an opportunity to experience the thrill of downhill gravity racing, as well as the companionship of other children and adults. The events are designed for the whole family, and every child is a winner.
