The 23rd Duck Race will be held on May 7th, 2011, and continues a tradition started in 1989 to support the local charities of the Estes Valley.

The Duck Race is simple. You “adopt” little rubber duckies and select one of 69 different Estes Valley charities to benefit from your adoptions. These charities will receive 95% of the monies collected from your adoptions. The more ducks that are adopted for a particular charity, the more money that charity makes. &
