This first weekend of summer is starting with a splash, since both of our GAME Derby Duck races will be taking place in Water Parks! The Special Olympics of Georgia in Atlanta and Children’s TLC in Kansas City, MO will race tomorrow and Sunday, respectively. Due to flooding in the Midwest, Cedar Rapids will be postponing their race (originally scheduled for this weekend) until July 20.
Each of our races this weekend are unique and we have no doubts that they will be very successful Duck Races.
Tomorrow, Friday, June 21, The Special Olympics of Georgia in Atlanta will race 10,000 ducks at Six Flags White Water in the little hooch. This event helps to fund-raise for Georgia’s 24,470 Special Olympics Athletes. Prizes include assorted gift cards and electronic devices. See below for pictures from Atlanta’s GAME Duck Race event in 2012.
On Sunday, June 23, 15,000 Derby Ducks will race in Kansas City’s Schlitterbahn Water Park to benefit the Children’s Therapeutic Learning Center . Check out this video from a local news station which interviews a parent of one of the Children who has benefitted from the Children’s center. The grand prize at this Water Park Derby Duck Race is a pair of ticket’s to the sold out Taylor Swift show in Kansas City as well as a one night hotel stay.
