Buy a duck and race at Wild Adventures this weekend

Posted: Updated:

Ten thousand rubber ducks will be dumped into Paradise River at Wild Adventures Saturday.

It's Second Harvest of South Georgia's Derby Duck Race. You still have a chance to purchase the ducks for $5 to help feed the hungry.

You can also get $10 off your admission to Wild Adventures or $10  off a season pass.

The food bank says the need for food is greater than ever.

"This year the need for food has been the highest we've ever had," said Frank Richards with Second Harvest of South Georgia. "Our opportunities to be able to raise funds this year has been extremely difficult. A lot of the state budget items we count on were seeing reductions in programs at a state and federal level. It's getting harder to bring money in at a time where the needs greater than it's ever been."

There's also a chance a duck race participant could win a million dollars.
