The Durham Literacy Center provides critical educational services for Durham County teenagers and adults seeking to transform their lives through improved literacy.  Over the last 25 years, a small but dedicated staff has trained more than 2,000 volunteer tutors who have educated more than 12,000 Durham residents.  Each year, more than 500 Durham Literacy Center students improve the quality of their lives through tuition-free instruction in reading and writing, English as a Second Language, and GED test-taking, as well as in workplace, computer, financial, civic, and health literacy.  Learn more about the Durham Literacy Center at our website:



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. If not present, winner will be notified by phone or email.

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.
