Adopt a duck – change a life! There’s nothing quite as joyful as watching hundreds of rubber ducks launch into a river and race to the finish. Adopting one of the ducks in the race is an easy way to show support our community of individuals on the Autism spectrum and their families. (And you can win some fantastic prizes too!)
This past June 2019, we partnered with the Adirondack Aquatic Center to host a Guinness World Record Attempt at the Duck Derby, for “Largest Gathering of People Wearing Swim Caps.” Adirondack Aquatic Center will be the premier facility of its kind in the Northeast, with 80,000 square-feet and four pools with round-the-clock programmable space. Facilities like this are imperative for learn-to-swim programs, vital for those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder to learn this valuable skill.
Duck Derby Attendees can adopt a duck (or more!) for the chance to win great prizes in the derby, and enjoy food trucks and sensory friendly activities for the whole family.
