Rubber ducks are currently available for adoption on Wakefield Rotary’s Super Duper Duck Splash website, www.ncducksplash.com and can be purchased until the race begins at noon on the day of the event. For a chance to win a first-place cash prize of $1,500, second place $1,000 or third place $500, participants can purchase a single duck adoption for $5 or groups of ducks at a discount. 

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit local youth-based nonprofits Note in the Pocket, Wake Forest Boys & Girls Club, Kerr Family YMCA and NC Football Club Youth. 

This year, there are two ways to watch the rubber ducks race to the finish line. Participants can choose to attend the event in-person or watch online via livestream on Wakefield Rotary’s Facebook (www.facebook.com/WakefieldRotary) or www.ncducksplash.com.
