KinderMourn’s Hope Floats Duck Race
Sunday, April 20, 3:00-5:00pm
U.S. National Whitewater Center
The Hope Floats Duck Race provides financial support for KinderMourn’s services of providing grief counseling to parents who have lost a child or children who have lost a parent or loved one. This race ensures that no grieving family has to suffer the devastating loss of a loved one alone. We at CSP are partnering with Charlotte Swim Academy to host a Team Jen Bunich and we hope that you will support our efforts. On April 20, 2008, over 12,000 sunglass-wearing rubber ducks will be dropped into the churning rapids at the U.S. National Whitewater Center to race for fabulous prizes. The general community adopts these adorable ducks for $5 each, buying a chance to win one of many great prizes and most importantly, offering financial support for a worthy cause. The day is filled with music, children’s activities, and enjoyment of a beautiful spring day! Our children have loved the duck race, the moon bounces, the face-painting – the list goes on! Please join us in supporting KinderMourn by adopting a flock of ducks under Team Jen Bunich.
