Million Dollar Duck Race

They’re back! Those little yellow ducks are returning to New York City again this summer to help Special Olympics New York raise the bucks! On August 6, 2008. Approximately 25,000 rubber ducks will take the plunge into the East River and race from the Brooklyn Bridge to the South Street Seaport for the 2008 Million Dollar Duck Race. And YOU have a chance to adopt one of these potentially lucky ducks.

Every $5 adoption is a donation to Special Olympics New York.Adopting one of these racing ducks in your name gives you a chance to win one million dollars or other fabulous prizes.

More importantly, your donation will help Special Olympics New York provide year-round sports training and Olympic-style competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities. For online donations please visit

Fundraisers like the Million Dollar Duck Race ensure that Special Olympics New York never charges its athletes or their families to participate. Individual and corporate support enables us to have events that bring smiles and a sense of accomplishment to the26,000 Special Olympics athletes in the New York City Region. The Million Dollar Duck Race is an excellent opportunity to support the intellectually disabled community while having fun.
