Duck race raises funds for Rotary service projects
Posted on Mar 31, 2015
Thousands of yellow rubber ducks will race down the Washougal River at noon Sunday, July 24, 2016 to raise money for Rotary service projects and scholarships.
Now in its 22nd year, the event promises the thrill of a race, the pure fun of sports entertainment and the reward of knowing the proceeds will support Rotary projects, both locally and internationally.
The race begins on the Third Avenue Bridge in Camas, WA when a front-loader donated by Nutter Corporation tips its bucket and unloads nearly 5,000 plastic ducks into the water below. From there the current takes over and the ducks dash to the finish line. The fastest ducks down the river will win prizes for those who’ve adopted them. READ MORE >
The grand prize is a one week condo stay in Hawaii, donated by Riverview Bank (7 nights plus $1,000 towards airfare). 2nd place wins a gold bracelet donated by Michael Nutter Jeweler. Many other prizes will be awarded, but the real winners are the kids and adults who benefit from Rotary service projects supported by the Derby!
The public is invited to watch the event from the Third Avenue Bridge over the Washougal River or from along the banks of the river below. Ducks can be adopted for $5 each by purchasing a Ducky Derby ticket.
