What is the Windy City Rubber Ducky Derby? It's a signature annual fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics Illinois! Thousands of spectators watch over 50,000 yellow rubber ducks splash into the Chicago River from the Columbus Drive bridge in downtown Chicago and race down river towards the finish line. Race Day kicks off at 10am on Thursday, August 7, 2014* at 400 North Michigan Avenue (The Wrigley Building) with entertainment for the entire family - face painting, games, free food and appearances by several sports mascots. Splashdown for the Duck Derby is at 1pm. All proceeds benefit over 21,000 athletes and over 18,000 Young Athletes across Illinois.

How do I adopt a duck? Adopt a duck for $5, a Quack Pack (6 ducks for $25) or a Flock of Ducks (24 ducks for $100) for your chance to win.
