Thank YOU for taking a step to support those affected by COVID-19!!
As a member of the Development Board for Nationwide Children's Hospital, I committed to helping raise funds to support The Joining Hands Fund: Helping Kids and Families Face Coronavirus by participating in the 2020 Columbus Duck Race. This year the event will be held virtually to ensure our communities are staying safe. Programming will begin at 11 A.M EST and will include an online "duck pluck" and the winners will be announced by one of our special guests! Join the fun while also supporting the Joining Hands Fund.
You can help by donating through my event page, using the "Donate Now" button on the right.
The following donations enter rubber ducks as participants in the race:
Solo Duck – $5
Family of Ducks - $25 - 6 Racer Ducks
Flock of Ducks - $50 - 12 Racer Ducks
Colony of Ducks - $100 - 25 Racer Ducks
Gaggle of Ducks - $250 - 60 Racer Ducks
Brood of Ducks - $500 - 130 Racer Ducks
Proceeds raised from the Columbus Duck Race benefit The Joining Hands Fund: Helping Kids and Families Face Coronavirus. Your support will help us invest in cutting edge research related to COVID-19, expand telehealth so kids continue to get the appointments they need, provide behavioral health support, and much more. You can learn more about The Joining Hands Fund here: https://give.nationwidechildrens.org/site/SPageNavigator/Covid19/Covid19.html.
Every $5 donation (i.e., rubber duck purchase) also enters you for a chance to win one of three cash prizes: $3,000, $2,000, or $1,000. Each duck purchased will be assigned a number that corresponds to a racer duck at the event, where each winner will be determined.
For those of you familiar with the Duck Race and/or the Development Board, you know that proceeds from this event (and others hosted by the Board) typically benefit pediatric research at the hospital. As COVID-19 has spread across the nation, the hospital saw a need to respond in order to both help with the Coronavirus and its effects on children and families, as well as continue to provide the care so desperately needed before COVID-19. We might not be able to give our neighbors a hug right now or pat them on the back but by purchasing a $5 duck for the Columbus Duck Race you are answering the call to pitch in, help our community and make a difference.
