Sophiep's Take on Things....
Fifteen thousand yellow rubber duckies dressed with sunglasses will be released into water during the Indian River Festival
at Sand Point Park in Titusville
where they will "race” to the finish line to win prizes for their "parents." This event is known as The Great Brevard Duck Race. It will take place on April 18th. People make donations to Crosswinds by "adopting" ducks for the Race. Ducks can be adopted on-line at substantial early-Duck savings by clicking here
The Great Brevard Duck Race is the major annual fundraiser for Crosswinds Youth Services Florida
which helps troubled young people to reach their fullest potential and to develop critical skills such as leadership. There are several outreach programs
to help better themselves. In addition, Crosswinds Youth Services also provide information and referral services, assessment, service planning, counseling and case management services as a tool for parents
in need of help or answers.
Come join FAS at the race and adopt your duck now. Here's a list
of prizes for the "parents" of the winning ducks.
