Barbecue Helps Great Rotary Duck Race

EUGENE, Ore. — For 26 years, the Great Rotary Duck Race has been active in helping prevent child abuse in Lane County.

On Saturday, there was a free barbecue at Kendall Chevrolet in Eugene to help rally for the event. The auto dealership is a sponsor of the first place prize truck.

Getting involved is easy. A ticket to enter the race is $5 and coordinators says it’s worth every penny.

“There’s no better thing to do for your community than to help a child in need and so every single duck means a child gets some support and their family gets the help. You can expect a lot of fun,” said Aimee Walsh, Duck Race Committee Member.

Race day is October 12 at Alton Baker Park and the goal this year is to raise $500,000.
