What is Duck Race and How can I Get Involved?
Our goal is to adopt 500 ducks by April 1!
The Great Naples Duck Race is an annual event hosted by NCH’s Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition, with one goal: raise money for water safety awareness.
DYK: Drowning is the #1 cause of death in Collier County for ages 1-4?
Both NCH Wellness Centers are helping to raise money for water safety by adopting ducks. Members and guests can donate online or in-person by scanning our QR code OR making cash donations at the centers.
The Duck Race raises money for drowning prevention throughout our county. This includes appearances by Stewie the duck, drowning prevention education, and safety alarms.
Life Jacket Loaner Program
Hurricane Irma destroyed all of the life jacket stations previously found on county beaches. These life jackets are key to drowning prevention in Collier County. Duck Race is hoping to raise enough money to replace them!
The NCH Safe & Healthy Childrens Coalition recently sponsored the Golden Gate Titans Football Teams swim lessons!
Our fundraising will help provide more of these life saving lessons.
