Lisa Brown: Thanks for support

Nearly 1,500 rubber ducks bobbed along the Yampa River during the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association’s Steamboat Rubber Ducky Race on Sept. 12. It was our first time hosting the event, and it was a success, raising important funds for our hospice and palliative care program.

It was wonderful to see so many families, children and residents excitedly following the ducks’ journey along the beautiful section of river through downtown Steamboat Springs. We want to extend a big thank you to race sponsors, in-kind sponsors, volunteers and organizations who helped bring together the many aspects of this event. We are very grateful for everyone who bought tickets to support the race.

The money raised will help us to continue caring for terminally ill patients and their families in Routt County. We look forward to another great Rubber Ducky Race next year.
