HOW TO ADOPT DUCKS
You can adopt one duck or as many as you want. On the day of the event adopted ducks will be simultaneously released to race swiftly down the Ol' Bull River.
There will be prizes at both the individual and corporate level. You don't have to be present to win. Prizes will be awarded for 1st through 3rd place. There's also a prize for the "BEST DECORATED DUCK". The biggest winners are the people and communities we serve.
Durham Literacy Center, July 15-Oct 4, M-F 10am-3pm - 1905 Chapel Hill Rd, Durham
Pullen Park, Sat, Oct 5, 10am-3pm - 520 Ashe Ave, Raleigh
American Tobacco, Oct 6, 12pm-1pm - 318 Blackwell St, Durham
The prizes are pretty amazing, but the biggest winners are the Durham teens and adults who will learn to read and write as a result of your support. The race will raise funds necessary for books and other learning aids, tutor training supplies, and GED testing fees. One $10 duck will buy a workbook for one beginner reader, two $10 ducks will buy training supplies for one tutor, and one $250 corporate duck will buy materials for two ESOL classes serving up to 30 adult learners.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! SEE YOU AT FAMILY FEST!!!
