Grab your running shoes and bring your appetite to the 1st Annual Quacks and Stacks 5K & Duck Dash! Join us at the Augusta Canal on Saturday, September 14 for a great family event! We’ll begin the day with a 100-meter duck dash as we drop 500 rubber ducks into the canal. The first duck to cross the finish line will receive a $500 cash prize. The second and third place ducks will receive $250 and $100. Following the duck dash, we’ll begin our 5K Run/Walk along the canal. Finish up with a pancake breakfast for all participants. If you’re not running, you may still purchase a pancake breakfast. All proceeds from this event will go to support educational efforts for our children at our two carepoints in Swaziland! Each year, we try to provide various school supplies – from uniforms, to shoes, to supplies and even school fees. The funds from this event will help support this effort.
Runners may register on Active.com. Register NOW to secure your t-shirt size. Walk up registrations will be accepted the day of the event, but your correct t-shirt size cannot be guaranteed. Check-in and registration will begin at 7:00 am at the Overlook Pavilion. The Duck Dash will begin around 7:45 am and the 5K will start as soon as the ducks finish. Don’t miss this great event for an even better cause! For more information or to purchase a duck, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you all for your support of this wonderful ministry!
