About The Turtle Splash
The idea is quite simple. People everywhere will have the opportunity to "adopt" our cute little plastic numbered turtles for a small $5 donation. Then on May 7, 2022 at high noon, thousands of numbered plastic turtles will race their way to the finish line in the swimming pool again this year. "In this continued era of social distancing, this will once again be a virtual event - being broadcast LIVE on Facebook from my backyard pool", said Sharon Jeavons, President and Race Director for the event. "Like most charities in our community, the ongoing pandemic has caused a financial hardship for our small organization, and this event will go a long way towards business as usual. I'm very excited to announce that our Turtle Fairy is back again this year as well, giving away FREE turtles to all of our supporters!"
The adoptive "parents" of the winning turtles win valuable prizes, including our Grand Prize 7-day cruise for 2 on Holland America valued at over $5,000 - with no expiration date! Up for grabs are a minimum of 10 valuable prizes. The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project raises awareness and money to help children with disabilities, our sponsors gain community exposure, supporters win great prizes and everyone has FUN in the process!
Turtle adoptions are available online NOW. For more information, a list of all our great prizes, and to adopt turtles online please visit https://bit.ly/turtles2022.
