Interwest partnered with the Play Boulder Foundation to raise funds to help children of all abilities and means have access to recreational programs.
Every year the Play Boulder Foundation sells 6,000 rubber ducks to contribute to grant funding that helps communities develop recreational programs for low-income and disabled children. The ducks are sold at a family-friendly community gathering featuring food, drink and festivities, including a race where thousands of rubber ducks race in the creek, including several large ducks sponsored and “duck-o-rated” by local businesses. Headquartered in Boulder, Interwest has long participated in the Annual Boulder Duck Race, both in organizing the community event and as a race contestant.
Awards are given to the ducks that cross the finish line first, with additional awards for the most popular and ingenious decorations. Hundreds of votes are cast by children and families to determine the best of the best, and this year our duck, Teri, was awarded “Most Creative”! We’re honored to have won this title, as well as to contribute to such a worthy cause.
