Virtual Ducky Race Winners

In addition to the Ducky Derby and Street Fair, a Virtual Ducky Race featuring Duckys swimming for local non-profits closed at midnight on August 18th.  Six Rotary-supported non-profits entered Duckys into the 2020 Race and all competed valiantly.  Thanks to all participating Duckys and their supporters.  Meet the Duckys and see the final Derby Leaderboard on the links to the left.  Through your ticket purchases and related "cheers", you have helped raise needed funds for local non-profits, including those with Duckys in the 2020 race.  Although all Rotary-supported non-profits are winners, the first place Ducky in the 2020 virtual derby is Doug Landry representing the Douglas Land Conservancy, earning an additional $1000 for the Douglas Land Conservancy.  Other racing ducky's and the organizations they represent were introduced and each participating organization was provided a check for $250.  This awards ceremony is available live on the Rotary Club of Castle Rock Facebook Page (
