SHARPSVILLE, PA (WKBN) – Saturday, 32 racers took to the pavement for the 9th Greater Pennsylvania Super Kids Classic in Sharpsville.

The event was for children with special needs, and is affiliated with the National Super Kids Classic Soap Box Derby, based in Akron.

Children sat in pairs of two in soap box derby cars and raced each other down Pierce Avenue Hill. Kids from across the state participated.

“For one day, these children don’t have a disability. And as one mother said to me, ‘We see their ability, not their disability,'” said event director Pam Dorfi.

She also said the races are important for kids who can’t play traditional sports like baseball and soccer, and that all kids were winners at the races.

“I do it because of the love that I have for these kids,” Dorfi said.
