Duck Race

Duck Race

The adopter of the fastest duck in the second annual Nashville Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash rubber duck race Aug. 30 will come away with $10,000, as well as helping to support children’s charitable programs in Middle Tennessee.

Included among 13 beneficiaries is GraceWorks’ Our Little Angels program, which provides needed baby supplies for new parents in need.

People can support their favorite from a list of charities by adopting a duck for $5 each. The ducks will be launched at 3:30 pm into the Lazy River at Nashville Shores Waterpark. Weather conditions may affect race time.  The race will last approximately 6 minutes. The top 10 ducks crossing the finish line will win cash prizes for their adopters. The first-place prize is $10,000.

Ducks are available on at the “Duck Race” link or at under the “Events” link. Entry forms are also available at the GraceWorks Thrift Store.

Discounted tickets for $16.99 for Nashville Shores for Aug. 30 only can be purchased at Type “kids” in the “Enter Promo” box at the top center and click the arrow button.

GraceWorks’ Our Little Angels provides car seats, cribs, diapers, clothing and other baby items to families referred by area agencies. Since its inauguration nearly two years ago, the program has helped 36 families with their newborns, including three sets of twins.
