This fundraiser does involve an initial outlay for the rubber or plastic ducks; but this is easily recouped and the costs are then negligible in subsequent years. Or while you "test the water" you might actually be able to rent or borrow some from another organisation who run a duck race in another location.An alternative to ducks is to run an event called Message In A Bottle. Simply use plastic water bottles each containing a piece of card with the name of the owner.One of the most fun and exciting fundraiser opportunities is throwing a rubber duck race to raise money for your organization. You can try to host one at a stream or river or you can play a game at a pool or a pond. These are great activities for guests and can be relatively easy to organize. Join now and have fun!
