Funds raised by The Duck Dash will be used to benefit hospitalized children. Donated funds are used for programs including Beads of Courage & Music Therapy and activities such as art projects, games, musical instruments, activity books, toys, movies, video games, iPads, Kindles, and exercise equipment. These programs and activities are designed to help children and families cope with their medical experiences, educate children about their illnesses, prepare them for procedures and surgeries, offer normal childhood play experiences, and celebrate holidays and special events during hospitalization.
The first Duck Dash was held in June 2013. All years combined, thousands of ducks have raced in the Calypso Cooler, an 800-foot-long lazy river, at Raging Waters Sacramento .....raising over $25,000!
