The ducks have completed their rigorous Spring Training and are ready to race their little hearts out in the 2019 Gwinnett Duck Derby!!
The Rotary Club of Sugarloaf's 5th Annual Gwinnett Duck Derby is right around the corner. Join us for a fun, family event on Saturday, August 3, 2019. The fun starts at 3:00 with the ducks hitting the water at about 4:30. The place to be:
West Gwinnett Park Aquatic Center, 4488 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Berkeley Lake, GA 30071
We'll have a fun day at the pool with games for the kids, a DJ, a food truck, snow cones, and, of course, those glorious ducks!
At race time, about 3,500 rubber ducks will fly down the water slide into the lazy river and paddle like crazy for the finish line. Each duck will have been adopted and the lucky winners will receive:
1st Place $2,500
2nd Place $1,000
3rd Place $500
Last Place. Continuing our tradition, we will cheer on all the remaining ducks until that final duck crosses the finish line, earning $10 for its adoptive parent.
Most importantly, we hope to raise over $15,000! Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of that will go toward community service. These funds help us serve our community locally and worldwide in many ways. Previous Gwinnett Duck Derbies allowed us to:
- Purchase an upper body ergometer for The Concussion Institute at Gwinnett Medical Center
- Purchase a virtual reality computer system to be installed at Corley Elementary School
- Support the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrenceville
- Sponsor Interact Clubs at Brookwood High School and the Boys and Girls Club
- Fund a scholarship at Gwinnett Tech
- Continue the Polio Plus effort of Rotary International aimed at eradicating polio entirely
We are very excited about the 2019 Gwinnett Duck Derby! Please join us on Saturday, August 3, 2019, from 3:00 to 7:00 at West Gwinnett Park Aquatic Center, 4488 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Norcross! Make plans now for a day of family fun at the pool!
