The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project's Turtle Splash logo

“This is the 16th year we have held this community event to benefit The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project’s Quality-of-life support programs for children with disabilities,” said Kristen Malfara, Founder and Executive Director for the organization. “We are so pleased to be able to give back in our community by assisting these families with special needs, and all proceeds from this event will support our new Morgan’s Legacy Gift program.”

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. In exciting news, the organization has announced that a generous donor has stepped up to help this year! The self-described ‘Turtle Fairy’ will be giving away FREE turtle adoptions through social media channel contests as well as providing FUN additions to our incredible prize packages. Then on May 1, 2021 at high noon, thousands of numbered plastic turtles will race their way to the finish line in a pool instead of the river like in previous years. “In this unprecedented era of social distancing, this virtual event will go on by 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, being closed for business has caused a financial hardship for our small organization, and this event will go a long way towards business as usual.”
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 10 other valuable prizes. The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project raises awareness and money to help those with disabilities, our sponsors gain community exposure, supporters win great prizes and everyone has FUN in the process!
Turtle adoptions available online NOW. For more information, a list of all our great prizes, and to adopt turtles online please visit
