Wakefield Rotary’s July 18 Duck Splash Benefits Local Youth

$3000 in prize money for first three rubber ducks to cross finish line

Rubber ducks adopted by the public will race in the second annual Super Duper Duck Splash on Saturday, July 18, 2020, at the WRAL Soccer Park, 7700 Perry Creek Road, Raleigh. 

A fundraiser for local youth-based nonprofits, the event is presented by the Wakefield Rotary Club of Wake Forest. Proceeds will be distributed to the club’s four Duck Buddies —Wake Forest Boys & Girls Club, Note in the Pocket, Kerr Family YMCA and North Carolina Football Club Youth.

An individual duck can be adopted by the public for $5, or groups of ducks at a discount, with a chance to win cash totaling $3,000 and other prizes when ducks cross the finish line including last place. 

With uncertainty of how the public will be allowed to gather during the pandemic, the Duck Race will be broadcast live on the Wakefield Rotary Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WakefieldRotarybeginning at 11 a.m. on July 18 with the duck race at noon.

If the public is allowed to gather to watch the Duck Race, there will be other attractions including a DJ and food trucks in Lot 5 of the WRAL Soccer Park.
