SINGAPORE : The "Great Singapore Duck Race" will make a comeback at the Singapore River in September.
Personalities from all walks of life will be there, including ex-national swimmer Leslie Kwok and inspirational leader Dr William Tan.
Six organisations will stand to benefit from this year's event, which is sponsored by the Singapore Computer Society.
Wilson Tan, President of Singapore Computer Society said: "We're hoping that with this, we'll be able to give back to the community. We feel that this is our small way of returning to the people... That's why we are having this duck race."
For the first time in the history of the race, there will be mascots.
The September race could very well be the last duck race in Singapore because the Singapore River will be developed into a reservoir.
"If there's an interest from the public and there's demand for the event to continue, we will scout around for a new location. This is the first time which we are having ambassadors on board. People came forward and asked how they can help and how they can assist, so we've included them in our programme for the year," said Hugh Yii, director of Festival Square Circle as well as organiser of the Great Singapore Duck Race 2007.
"I'm very glad to be an ambassador and this is the first time that Paya Lebar Methodist Girls' Secondary is taking part in the duck race. We are very happy to be supporting TOUCH community services. We also get this cute little duck so it's a plus for us," said Renee Tan, a head prefect at Paya Lebar Methodist Girls' Secondary. - CNA /ls

So you've learnt about it already. I'm one of the pathetic onesselling the ticket thingy. It's for $10 and your duck will be racing @ the Singapore River on 9th September. If your duck reaches the finish line the 1st, you'll stand to win a prize of $10,000 (If I'm not wrong) So what you're waiting for? ADOPT A DUCK NOW! The rubber ducks costs $5 (Not sold alone, must be purchased with 2 or more tickets. There are limited editions) All proceeds will go to the 6 benefectories: Tan Tock Seng Hospital Community Charity Fund, Touch Community Services, Tampines Family Service Centre, Metta Welfare Association, Concern & Care Society and the Handicaps Welfare Association.

I suggest you people to go SPC to adopt a duck instead of coming to us. Cause we have limited ducks, hahaha. SPC sells the one certificate with one duck. Whatever it is, ADOPT A DUCK NOWWWW!
