On November 7th, watch the great raft of numbered KOS racing ducks swim through obstacles and waterfalls to make their way to the finish line. Lucky ducks will win prizes for 1st – 3rd place finish, dead last, and even some random “pluck prizes” at the end. 

Kids of Steele is comprised of local families who want to teach their children about service and kindness, while raising awareness and funds for the UArizona Steele Children's Research Center.

KOS Rubber Ducks will race live down the JW Marriott Starr Pass Lazy River while our supporters attend virtually to cheer on their ducks safely from home. Funds raised from this annual event will be used for “greatest-need” projects at the UArizona Steele Children’s Research Center.
