About The Duck Race

The Development Board of Nationwide Children’s Hospital is proud to announce that the tenth annual Columbus Duck Race will take place on Saturday, August 21, 2021. As we continue to navigate through the ongoing rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic we have decided out of abundance of caution that this year the ducks are going digital!

Our virtual duck race gives participants near and far the opportunity to join in the fun from the comfort of their own home. Leading up to the event a variety of safe and socially distanced activities and community engagements will be available for our supporters. The “duck pluck” will take place at 11:00am on Saturday, August 21st and winners will be announced by our special guests.

Duck race entries are available for purchase in a variety of quantity options. Example: Family of Ducks- $25 = 6 ducks. A single duck entry is $5.00. Each entry is assigned a number corresponding with the duck(s) prior to the event. Numbers will be provided to the purchaser prior to the day of the event.
