Raising cash around world
RUBBER duck races are used as a way of raising money for organisations around the world.
People donate money to the organisation by sponsoring a duck.
At the end of the fundraising drive, all of the ducks are thrown into the river or stream, with the first to float past the finish line winning a prize for its sponsor.
The largest race in the United States is the annual Freestore Foodbank Rubber Duck Regatta in Cincinnati, Ohio.
