- The School Scholar Race allows area schools to compete while giving back to the community.
- The Big Chief Business Battle gives businesses a chance to show off their company.
- Individual adult and kid rubber duck races round out the fun event.
The Special Olympics have been one of our nation's most impactful organizations. The games provide sports training and athletic competition in Olympic-type sports for children and adults with disabilities. If you know a participant, or someone who is related to one, they'll be the first to tell you what it means to their lives.
Rotary clubs across the Heartland hold events like this to serve and raise money so they can give back. Cape West Rotary volunteers with Read to Succeed, raises funds for university scholarships, provides support for Levi's Adventure Trail, and travels to Haiti to build schools. The list is long and supporting events like the Cape West Rotary Duck Regatta are fun and they do a lot of good.
So, I invite you to the Cape West Rotary Duck Regatta this Thursday at Cape Splash. It's your chance to put service above self while having fun with your family, and that makes this A Better Heartland.
