On April 20th, the second rubber duck race will take place in Merano. Last year almost 40.000 € of donations were collected. The main proceeds of the 2nd Merano rubber duck race will go to the association "Associazione volontari nell‘assistenza di famiglie ed anziani di Lana”, an association that helps families and seniors in need.
There are two rubber duck races taking place on the river Passer between the Post bridge and the Theatre bridge: the first is a sponsored rubber duck race, where we will participate with two beautifully decorated ducks, and then there is a lucky rubber duck race, open to the public, were you are more than welcome to participate with a small contribution.
Always bear in mind - it’s for a good cause!
The program: On Saturday 20th of April first the sponsored rubber duck race takes place at 11:00 o'clock, followed by the lucky rubber duck race. At 1 pm the event is completed with the award ceremony for both races.
You want to be a part of this fun charity event? The racing license for the lucky rubber duck race can be purchased in the shop of the Therme Merano. The purchase price of € 5.00 per duck is given to charity. The first 100 places will be rewarded with great prizes.
New: The most beautiful duck of the “sponsored ducks” will be awarded in a beauty pageant. You can find all the contestants on the Facebook page "GaradellePapereEntenrennen". Make sure to give our duck your “like” to crown her as the beauty queen.
