We were thrilled to partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation Northwest and The Seattle Children’s Museum for a fun-filled day with local Starlight families in honor of Pediatric Duck Day!  We hosted over 150 children and their families for a Duck Tour and had a BLAST!  After seeing all the sights of Seattle, the Ducks splashed into Lake Union to cruise around Gas Works Park and saw breathtaking views of the skyline.  After the tour, The Seattle Children’s Museum hosted Starlight families for an ice cream social and activities.  It was an amazing day and we were so excited to be a part of it! A huge thank you also goes out to Pepsi for donating waters for all the families, the event came together with support from a lot of great partners and we are so lucky to be a part of such a great community. Starlight’s mission is to help seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear, and isolation through entertainment, education, and family activities.  Ride the Ducks of Seattle has been a proud partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation Northwest since 2008.  To learn more about our partnership, click...
