Replacement ducks are not available. Please don't lose your duck!
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!!!
