Big discounts at Rapid City Big D gas stations Tuesday

It was a pay-it-forward kind of afternoon at two Rapid City Big D gas stations Tuesday.

Customers who bought five ducks for the Great Black Hills Duck Race received a 25-cent-per-gallon discount at the pumps, a free t-shirt, and a chance to win up to $5,000 in cash and prizes.

Some patrons at the Lacrosse Street station did not come for the big discounts, but to give back to the Children's Miracle Network (CMN). Although David T. Leftwich is lucky enough to have healthy children, he does have friends who have used the CMN and says for him, "It's like giving thanks."
But many others came down without a direct connection to the cause, but more of a sense of community.

Stan Hawkins' wife sent him down to the Lacrosse Street Big D to donate, which he says is important because his Native American heritage considers everybody as related, "so we take care of relations."

Even though the Big D promotion is finished, the Children's Miracle Network is still offering ducks for sponsorship. The ducks can be entered into the race individually for $5 each or as a five-duck package for $25. Ducks can be purchased from Duck Race teams or at the Rapid City Regional Hospital CMN office at 2925 Regional Way, Suite 100. Ducks can also be ordered online the Rapid City Regional Hospital website at

The race begins at 2 p.m., Sunday, July 27 starting near the West Main Street McDonald's and ending at Memorial Park.

All proceeds from the race benefit the Children's Miracle Network in the Black Hills.
