You can now adopt a duck for Naperville’s Annual Riverwalk Duck Race (a rubber duck, that is)! This race will have thousands of rubber ducks “racing” on the DuPage River on August 14, all to benefit the Naperville Riverwalk Foundation.
Single ducks or “flocks” are available for adoption online HERE.
One duck: $5
Five ducks: $20
25 ducks: $100
50 ducks: $175
100 ducks: $325
250 ducks: $750
You can even sponsor a jumbo duck for $100! The jumbo ducks can be decorated and have a clear advantage in the race, but are not able to take home the cash prizes.
The Riverwalk Foundation is also using the annual duck race to raise awareness about wildlife in Naperville. Residents and visitors are reminded not to feed wild ducks and geese as it can be harmful to the ecosystem and its wildlife.
