What a Shellebration!
It was a fabulous day on the delta at the 5th annual Turtle Derby benefiting Covenant Hospice. The Turtle Derby on the Delta is a rubber turtle race and family fun day and was held on Saturday, September 22 at the beautiful Five Rivers Delta Resource Center in Spanish Fort, AL.
“adopted” a rubber turtle for a suggested donation of $5 each. Approximately 1,000 turtles raced to the finish line for a
chance to win their adopter a fabulous prize.There were also
exciting activities for the whole family to enjoy while exploring their local delta, including face-painting, kids' crafts, inflatables and the Gulf Coast Tumblebus.
This year was also the debut addition of a 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run prior to the Turtle Derby activities! For a complete list of all the winners and their times, click here. (link opens in new window)
