A Mario Kart-inspired go-kart experience is coming to Langley all in the name of community.

Hosted by the SouthRidge Fellowship, the event will be a place for groups of three to six to come together in support of the Langley Food Bank.

“We are so excited to provide a safe and fun event with our community this July,” said Jon Grochowski, children’s ministry director with the fellowship.

The SouthRidge Speedway Event aims to raise money for the local food bank to supply wagons for families to transport items home with them.

“We want to help ensure families in our community have the ability to receive and bring home food,” Grochowski said. “The food bank has been doing amazing work every single week and we want to assist them in any way we can.”
