Duck Racing
Thousands of sponsored rubber ducks in preparation for the Duck Race
Duck racing is a novel fundraising practise used today in several countries; mainly the USA, UK and Australia.
Money is raised for a specified cause by offering people the opportunity to 'adopt' a duck. This entails paying a small amount of money to have a rubber duck with their name on it entered into the race.
Once all of the ducks have been sponsored, they are gathered and dumped into a body of water (often by a JCB digger).
The first rubber duck to float past a predetermined finish line is the winner and the person who 'adopted' it wins a prize.
