Welcome to the Carey Services Duck Race page
The annual Carey Services Duck Race has become an early-summer tradition in Grant County, and we are planning to conduct our 14th annual event in 2020. But, it will look a bit different than you might have become accustomed to seeing.
Probably the most noticeable change is the name of this year’s race. Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Marion General Hospital, this year’s race will be the Carey Services Duck Race presented by Marion General Hospital. This year’s race also has been pushed back from its traditional late June date; it is scheduled this year for July 25. With the uncertainty around being able to safely gather in groups and the availability of The Splash House in Marion, we’re planning some new ways you can help us have fun and raise money to help the individuals we serve.
We might not have a lazy river for the ducks’ annual swim, but Quackers — Carey Services’ duck mascot — and the race team are working diligently on some surprises to ensure this year’s event is fun and memorable. Stay tuned for more event details in coming days.
In the continuing spirit of fun, we’ve retained the ticket packages that have been such a hit the past couple of years. In addition to buying a single duck for $5, you can buy packages, each of which include bonus ducks — which means more opportunities to win. A Quack Pack is six ducks for $25; a Quackers’ Dozen — in honor of Carey Services’ mascot — is 12 ducks for $50, and The Flock is 25 ducks for $100. Click on the ticket graphic for more information.
We’re also offering five cash prizes this year; five lucky ducks will provide prizes of $1,000, $500, $300, $200, and $100 to their respective ticket holders. Several ducks also will be drawn for additional prizes after the cash-winning ducks are determined. Winners do not need to be present at the race to win prizes.
