Teeny Tiny Turtles on the Tar

Adopt a Turtle Change A Life!
Adopt a Turtle Now!

It’s that time of year again when The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region release thousands of tiny rubber turtles in the Tar River to race and raise funds for our organization. For our 4th Annual event, our challenge is to again have all 2,000 turtles adopted and for that, we need your help!

Each turtle sold allows us to continue to carry out our mission to over 1,800 youth in the Twin Counties. Once all the turtles are sold, they will be dropped from the Peachtree Street Bridge at the Rocky Mount Mills campus (don’t worry, no turtles are harmed during this event).

Remember, this isn’t just a race with 2,000 rubber turtles trying to make it to the finish line, it’s a race where our most precious and vulnerable commodities: our children, and our future, are trying to make it over the line in a race fraught with hurdles.

We’re up to the challenge, and we know you are too.
