What does the Foundation do with the funds raised from the Community Day/Duck Race?  Well that is a quacktastic question!  We award grants to teachers in the Hackettstown school district (K- 12th grade) for creative, innovative projects - check out what we have accomplished on our Grants page!

The ducks must finish thru the opening in the
middle of the finish line - the first ducks thru
get put into the "official" finishing board...
Then we find the tickets that correspond to the ducks thus giving us our winners!
The starting line....
And down the river they go.....
So how does the Duck Race work...?  I'm so glad your asked!
You buy a ticket - your ticket has a # on it....
We put your # on a race duck.
