Red Ball


RedBall Express is a local fundraising event organized by the Rotary Clubs of La Plata County. All proceeds from the event support Rotary projects in La Plata County and local programs for people in need or at risk.

Riverhouse Children's Center is proud to participate in the annual fundraiser and be a nonprofit partner for the Red Ball Express.

Red Ball Express happens each year during Durango Snowdown.  Up to 300 gigantic numbered red exercise balls roll down 11th Street!


Every year, prior to the event, $5 tickets are sold. Each ticket is assigned a 2-number combination. If your combination matches the first, second, or third sets of balls to cross the finish line, you win $5000, $2000, or $1000, respectively!


With the help of our staff and families, we sold the most tickets out of all of the nonprofits in Durango over the last few years. 


Fun fact - out of the 11 years we've been a part of this fundraiser, we have sold winning tickets 8 times!
