Summit Foundation Great Rubber Duck Race

Hi Everyone, I wanted to let you know about a really great event that will be taking place On Saturday August 30 in Breckenridge, CO.  The Summit Foundation will be hosting the 27th Annual Breckenridge Grand Vacations Great Rubber Duck Race!  Activites start at 11am including a lively Blue River Plaza with kids activities and a BBQ on the Riverwalk Lawn.  The Hudson Auto Source Kids Duck Dash begins at 1pm as Red, White, and Blue Fire drop 750 kids ducks into the Blue River for a chance to win great prizes.  At 2pm is the First Bank Business Battle Race, where businesses compete for an amazing snowcat trip for 12 people! At 3pm is the 27th Annual Great Rubber Duck Race sponsored by Breckenridge Grand Vacations where nearly 10,000 little Rubber Ducks race to the finish line with the first 50 ducks winning prizes.   If you have never seen this event, it is a site worth seeing!


The Summit Foundation awards  grants to nonprofit organizations in Summit County and neighboring communities.  Additionally, local high school graduates are eligible for scholarship funds awarded by The Foundation.  In the past year, the Summit Foundation has distributed more than $2 million back into our local community in grants and scholarships


Ducks adoptions will be held all around town prior to the event, including at the Dillon Farmers Market on Friday 8/29 where I will be volunteering so stop by and adopt your duck.  You can also adopt your duck online by clicking HERE.
