At the Second Annual D.C. Duck Race on May 6, 2017, we raced around 3,000 environmentally-friendly rubber ducks in the Anacostia River. The generous support of sponsors and supporters provided funds to non-profit organizations that enhance the health, education, and welfare of local and global youth!
The Rotary Club of Washington, D.C. would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers, prize winners and everyone in the community for their support of this important event. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018.
