Kiwanis Duck Race for Tiny Hearts at CHEO

The Kiwanis Duck Race has become a focal point for the start of spring in Ottawa http://www.capcan.ca. The race is the largest Duck Race in the world, with over 100,000 plastic ducks 'racing' down the Rideau Canal. Each duck is sponsored through a $5 ticket purchase, and with winners take home some great prizes including cars, jewelry and trips.

However the really winners are the kids at the Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario http://www.cheo.on.ca, because the race, which was first run in 1987 has raised over $3 million for CHEO.
