The Summit Foundation’s Great Rubber Duck Race
The Summit Foundation is the leading organization inspiring people and mobilizing resources to improve and enrich the lives of individuals in Summit County and our neighboring communities of Alma, Fairplay, Kremmling and Leadville.
Each year Rockridge helps the Summit Foundation construct their "Rubber Duck Race" course. Rockridge spends labor day weekend setting up, constructing the finish line bridge, raking ducks through the course, and returning the river back to its natural state so the Summit Foundation can send thousands of ducks down the Blue River through downtown Breckenridge.
BOEC Remodel Partnership
Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC)
The Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) provides life changing outdoor learning experiences for those who are often excluded from outdoor activity due to a disability or special need. Their headquarters on Wellington Rd has not adequately served many of the organization's needs. After meeting with the BOEC leadership, Rockridge Building and Custom Mountain Architects offered pro-bono architectural and construction services to update and expand their facility. The updated building, completed in the Fall of 2018, provides new office and conference capacities and increases storage. Most importantly, however, the majority of the new third floor is dedicated to housing needs that are vital for the BOEC's staff and volunteers.
Please visit the BOEC's website and learn how to get involved in this inspiring local organization.
The Cycle Effect
The Cycle Effect’s mission is empowering young women through mountain biking to create brighter futures and build stronger communities.
Alex Esclamado, Rockridge Operations Director, is on the board of The Cycle Effect. He and his family believe in the mission of this organization and enjoy using bikes as the conduit to exposing girls to the opportunities available in Summit County. He enjoys that the girls who make it through the program often use the skills and perseverance learned through the program to become first time college graduates in their families.
