The BIG race promises a minimum of $1,000 to the winner or 40% of the proceeds raised from adopted ducks (whichever is greater). Ducks can be adopted for $10.00. Additional prizes for subsequent places will also be awarded. There will be a “Pluck a Duck” opportunity for smaller children with age-appropriate prizes.
