Kindermourn is a local organization that helps families through the grieving process by offering support groups and counseling. Hope Floats is their fundraiser, a duck race at the US National Whitewater Center. We attended the event last weekend.
15,000 ducks in a cage were lowered down from a crane and released into the water. The winning duck brings in $3500. The little yellow dots you see in the photos are the rubber duckies, think Ernie and Bert in rub-a-dub in a tub.
Not at all enthused by the ducks, Ben got a little love from the same dog we saw a few weeks ago at the whitewater center.
