On Saturday, May 12, 2001, 100, 000 Ducks were loaded into a bin and were dumped into the canal at Hartwell Locks. With a cheering crowd of over 150 people, the ducks moved at a very fast pace. The weather was not in our favor but it did not damper the spirit of the crowd.

Now that the race is over, it is time for some of the hard workers to take a rest and start planning for next year's race.
A big thank you to this years Chair, Chris Thompson and Vice Chair, Brian Kloppenburg for all their hard work.
Thanks to all Kiwanians as well who helped out with all aspects of the race, and especially Race Day. If you would like to attend the Prize presentation for the Duck Race, it is at the CHEO FOUNDATION, Thursday, May 24th, 2001 at 12:00 PM.
Hope to see you there!
