Event: How Can a Rubber Duck Help RSDSA’s Young Adult Weekends?


The 22nd Annual Pawcatuck, Rhode Island River Duck Race has been postponed to Saturday, June 27, 2020 due to COVID-19.

RSDSA’s Young Adult Committee is selling Duck Sponsorship Certificates for $5 each! Approximately 20,000 rubber ducks will participate in the race and you will have your own rubber duck number corresponding to your Duck Certificate. Each duck is the exact same size, color and weight. Judges will preside over the event from various land and water locations. A specially created funnel will ensure that only one duck at a time crosses the finish line.
There are over 90 valuable prizes awarded with the Grand Prize being a trip for 4 to Disney World with airfare, hotel accommodations and park passes or $2500 in cash! Grand prize winner is responsible for all taxes. Prizes must be picked up within 60 days of winning.
