FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Thousands of little rubber ducks will soon be floating down St. Joe River.
SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect) is holding its annual duck race June 21 to help prevent child abuse and neglect.
Duck sponsorships are available for $5 dollars. SCAN hopes to raise $168,000 to benefit family services in north central and northeast Indiana counties.
Participants who purchase a duck sponsorship will receive a certificate that corresponds with an i.d. on the duck. After the flock is released into the St. Joe River, the owners of the first 26 ducks to cross the finish line will receive a prize.
SCAN is celebrating 40 years this year.
The annual duck race is Saturday, June 21 at Johnny Appleseed Park. Games start at 10 a.m. Ducks will be dropped into the water at 11:30 a.m.
