2020 Duck Splash Success

Aug 4, 2020

Our Quackers were not stopped by COVID-19. Our club was able to safely livestream the race on Facebook and YouTube with only our Wakefield Rotarians onsite to setup and conduct the race.

We were proud to still raise money for youth charities in our community thanks to the more than 3000 duck adoptions by people who care. Visit www.ncducksplash.com to still donate post-race for COVID-19 relief efforts. Click on yellow box (on left side) that says Beyond a Duck Donations.

Here are the winners of the 2020 duck race presented by Wakefield Rotary Club of Wake Forest. 

Thanks to our sponsors (also listed below). The true winners are our non-profit youth charities who will benefit from the proceeds of the race. By buying a duck or several, YOU made our fundraiser a success!
