Five thousand rubber ducks will race toward a cure for childhood cancer in the second annual Motor City Quack Attack Saturday, Sept. 10 at Red Oaks Waterpark in Madison Heights.
Hosted by Kids without Cancer and sponsored by Oakland County Parks, Motor City Quack Attack raises money by participants adopting rubber ducks. The cost per duck is $5. Ducks can be adopted at MotorCityQuackAttack.com or purchased on race day at the waterpark. The first three ducks to pass the finish line win a cash prize: First place, $1,000; second place, $500; and third place $250. The ducks will race around the 990-foot long River Ride.
Gates open at 11 a.m. with the duck launch at 2 p.m. The event will also include a photo booth and raffle.
Proceeds from the duck race benefit will fund pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Wayne State University and Karmanos Cancer Institute.
