There are just 10 days left to buy a duck for the Make-a-Wish Utah 24th annual rubber duck race to raise funds, and I can't think of an organization that I respect more than Make-a-Wish, here are the details of the race:
24th Annual Rubber Ducky Derby
August 25th, 2012 Lindon Aquatics Center
On August 25th, 2012 thousands of duckies will race around the lazy river at The Lindon Aquatics Center in hopes of becoming the lucky duck that wins the grand prize, a camp trailer valued at $17,800 courtesy of Sierra RV, Sunset Utah.
With your help, we look forward to many more years of granting wishes for Utah children with life-threatening medical conditions.
So you can sponsor a duck for just $6, and of course you can sponsor more than one. If you are interested, I would ask you to use the following link, a couple of my co-workers are heavily involved as volunteers with Make-a-Wish and this is their fundraising page.
On thing that is very cool is that the folks at Big Deluxe Tattoo are holding their very own race with 26 gift certificates up for grabs, now their race is separate from the main race and the ducks are a bit more pricey, but you can find details about their special race here.
I know that the only thing bigger than the passion of RSL fans for their team is their hearts and willingness to support good causes, well folks this is a good cause. Thanks for your support.
