Signal Centers Adult Services to host Mario Kart Race

Chattanooga, Tenn. (WDEF) – Signal Centers’ Adult Services will host the 2nd annual Mario Kart Race on October 6th.

Signal Centers is located at 109 N. Germantown Road. The race will begin at 10:30 a.m Friday.

The participant-driven project encourages a whole lot of creativity, imagination and hard work! Individuals from the Adult Services Program choose their character and design and build the cars for a friendly competition in the field behind the adult center.

The children’s program and family members cheer on each character.

Mario Kart would not be complete without a few obstacles and coins to collect. Beware of the mushrooms, water hazards, banana peels, bricks and sewer caps!  This fun, lively event is both a participant and crowd favorite!

““For us, especially to acknowledge and create a participant-driven activity, it’s very empowering for individuals,” said Adult Services Director Courtney Chandler. “Our participants have a voice in what kind of programming they want, and how they want to enjoy their time here. It’s important they know their opinions matter and they’re being heard,” she added.

Chandler said the project has been in the works for the last month. Below is a Facebook link from last year’s inaugural race.
