Congratulations to Duck Race Winners

The Summit Foundation 23rd Annual Great Rubber Duck Races
September 4, 2010
Breckenridge Riverwalk Center

Held on Saturday September 4, 2010, The Great Rubber Duck Race sent 7,247 little yellow rubber ducks down the Blue River to benefit The Summit Foundation. Congratulations to Sue Luginbill, the winner of 7 nights lodging in a two bedroom suite in Orlando courtesy Grand Timber Lodge.  Just over 400 ducks were entered in the kid’s duck dash, and Leah Gard represented the swiftest kids duck.  Eide Bailly’s duck took top honors in the business battle duck race.

Congratulations as well to FirstBank of Breckenridge for its cleverly decorated duck in the jungle, which won the best decorated duck contest in the business battle duck race according to our expert panel of judges.  High regards were given to Breckenridge Elementary and Copper Mountain Resort for their runner-up decorated ducks.

Thank you to all those that adopted ducks in these duck races, and in particular to the businesses and sponsors that participated in the business battle duck race.
