The 2018 Hampton Roads Rubber Duck Race
Over 2,000 people recently attended the 2018 Hampton Roads Rubber Duck Race. This annual event benefits Children's Health Investment Program—a non-profit agency that promotes healthier communities by supporting health services for young kids. Adults and children alike enjoyed a variety of food and fun-filled activities until race time, when rubber ducks were dropped into the Locks and everyone watched to see which lucky duck would cross the finish line first.
