The Columbus Duck Race benefits The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The Institute is focused on discovery- an improved treatment for serious childhood illness, an exciting new insight into basic biological process, a pioneering strategy to prevent injury or disease or an innovative way to deliver care to the most vulnerable of our children.

Join us for this family-fun event and watch thousands of rubber ducks race to the finish line. Register today and you and your lucky duck could be a winner of one of our great prizes! Visit Event Details for more information.
