Donate a Duck to Help Special Olympics

Wednesday, August 30, 2006 | 05:00 PM


The  Million Dollar Duck Race has become an annual event in Manhattan to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Every $5 donation to Special Olympics New York adopts one of these racing ducks in your name and gives you a chance to win one million dollars, American Airlines tickets, a digital camera, or other fabulous prizes. More importantly, your donation will help Special Olympics New York provide year-round sports training and Olympic-style competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

It is on Thursday, September 14th at the South Street Seaport.

Todd Harrison is helping to raise money for this event; You can sign up or just make donation here

ahh ... 25,000 ducks * $5 /duck is $125,000. And they are giving away $1,000,000 at the end? Wouldn't it be better to can the duck race and just give the prize money to the Special Olympics?

In fact, if you've got a lot of ready cash buying 25,000 or so ducks seems like a pretty good bet.
