At our inaugural D.C. Duck Race, last April 30, 2016, we raced 3,300 environmentally-friendly rubber ducks in the Anacostia River for a successful inaugural event! The generous support of sponsors and supporters provided more than $25,000 in 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 2017.
