Still Time To Adopt Your Ducks For Charlotte's Hope Floats Duck Race

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

HOPE FLOATS ONCE AGAIN AT THE US NATIONAL WHITEWATER CENTER IN CHARLOTTE, NC!

ADOPT A RUBBER DUCK NOW!

 

Sponsored by KinderMourn, the 2022 "Hope Floats" Duck Race will take place at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte on Sunday, May 15th. Some 5,000 Charlotteans are expected to line the banks of the main channel to watch 40,000+ adopted, sun-glass wearing, rubber duckies brave the whitewater rapids towards the finish line. The "duck splash" and race begin at 3:30 pm. There is a grand prize of $2,500 if your duck is the first to cross the finish line. Come early at 2:00 pm and enjoy family entertainment until the race begins.

 

The "Hope Floats" Duck Race is in support of KinderMourn's 44-year mission to provide counseling and support services for parents grieving the death of a child, as well as  to children and teens grieving the death of a parent, sibling or loved one. KinderMourn believes that no one should grieve alone.

 

This year, KinderMourn's goal is to float 40,000 ducks. To-date 38,384 rubber ducks have been adopted. There's still time to adopt a duck for this Sunday's Race and to help reach the goal of 40,000 ducks.

The "Hope Floats" Duck Race supporting KinderMourn's 44-year mission to provide counseling and support for those that grieve is a worthwhile endeavor. Losing a child including children and teens grieving siblings and loved ones has a profound effect on them, their schools, and the community, May funds pour in to help those in need.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP thanks, Patricia, for the good wishes. This seems to be one event in Charlotte that usually manages to meet its goal... probably because it's for a very worthy cause and it's a lot of fun.

They quit doing those rubber ducky float races around here because the Indian tribes were complaining about the duckies being stuck in their nets Nina.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS no kidding, Paul! Wow! This race is down the white water river at the US National Whitewater Center... this one happens just once a year. But lots of races throughout the year here. Center was built specially for this.
