The rubber Duck has become an iconic symbol for Jeep owners! The phenomenon known as #DuckDuckJeep, is a global movement that emerged from a single, random act of kindness by Allison Parliament, the founder of Duck Duck Jeep. If you would like to learn more about her story of how a traumatic experience and an inexpensive rubber duck led to the formation of what is now an international off-roading community, click here.
Meet Our Namesake - Chase
Chase was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma two days after his tenth birthday. He battled cancer for almost eight months before succumbing to the disease.
Chase was like the sun: Brilliant, radiant, and able to light up the world. He was a rare soul who found caring and loving others an easy priority. Throughout his fight, he still put others needs and wants before his own. When he was asked by the Make-A-Wish foundation what would he like to have or do, he asked for new gym equipment for his school, rather than anything for himself.
At the end, he didn't fear dying, he feared being forgotten. Our goal is to continue his legacy by putting others first, helping where we can, and choosing hope in dark circumstances. It is our goal to continue to raise awareness for childhood cancer, and other childhood illnesses while making it easier on those who live with that disruption of their lives. Helping ease the burden for those in the fight is exactly what Chase wanted to do.
Matthew 17:20 says, "and Jesus said unto them, because of your unbelief: verily I say unto you, if you have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you."
Chase had a way of leaving you with a mustard seed, and now, we will move mountains for him. It is time to have a "C" word that causes smiles, instead of fear; one that can't be forgotten: The Gr8t Chase.
