Lend a hand or buy a duck for the Mid-Columbia Duck Race

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds come out every year to see the Columbia River get flooded with plastic ducks, but to get to that point all of those ducks must first be purchased.

 Today was the 22nd annual Tri-Cities Rotary Kick-off at the Columbia Center Mall.

 People could sponsor their own duck for $5 and see it race down the river later this year.

 Over 2-million dollars have been raised in the past 22 years for this fundraiser. The money helps local human service organizations.
