KinderMourn’s largest annual fundraiser, the Hope Floats Duck Race, will be held on April 26th from 2-5 p.m. at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Watch the rapids turn yellow as over 15,000 racing rubber duckies hit the channel and race to the finish line to win 10 great prize packages. Proceeds from the race enable KinderMourn to expand programs and services throughout the greater Charlotte area.

Want to race a duck? Ducks can be “adopted” for $10 each or $30 for half a dozen by visiting www.kindermourn.org or calling KinderMourn (704) 376-2580. The free event includes live music, children’s activities, and an amazing race of thousands of ducks.

KinderMourn is a non-profit business that has served the entire Charlotte community since 1978. KinderMourn’s mission is to provide hope for bereaved parents, grieving children and teens by offering support and counseling programs, creating awareness of bereavement issues and empowering the community to effectively assist those who have suffered an unthinkable loss.

MomsCharlotte.com contributor Meg McElwain, who shared her story as a mother of child battling pediatric cancer (see Meg’s original blog “Witness to a Mircale” here), has found KinderMourn to be an incredible resource for her family and recently wrote about their experience on the Charlotte Smarty Pants site.
