Guelph’s popular duck race fundraiser has returned in a new format. Although the ducks couldn’t bob towards a finish line before an eager Canada Day crowd this year, they’ll have a "digitial race" online on Thanksgiving. The event and fundraising is being shared by two clubs, the Rotary Club of Guelph-Wellington (the annual duck race organizers) and the Rotary Club of Guelph, as part of celebrating 100 years of Rotary in Guelph.
 
All proceeds will support local charities in their COVID recovery and relief efforts.
 
"Got Duck" tickets can be purchased here until the Digital Duck Race on Thanksgiving. They cost $10/each, 6 for $50 or 14 for $100. 
 

The grand prize is a $5,000 shopping spree in Downtown Guelph. Nine secondary prizes include electronics, $500 gift cards, a tool package, beer fridges and a chance to test drive an exotic car. Two early bird prizes of Apple Airpods will be drawn. The “duck race” finale will be on Thanksgiving. Click here for more prize details. The prizes are pretty sweet, thanks to generous donors.

           
 
All ticket sales will be directed back to charities in the community. The Rotary Club of Guelph-Wellington has organized the Guelph duck race since 1988, making it a fixture on the Speed River every Canada Day. It was delayed and changed this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
“Better late than never this year!” laughed organizer Richard Ritsema.
