The Duck Race is The Center for Prevention of Abuse's largest fundraiser and the success of the Race is essential in raising funds to help all people live free from violence and abuse. This year, more than 30,000 rubber ducks will race down a giant water slide in East Peoria and the first 30 ducks to cross the finish line win a prize for their owner. Our prizes range from the $5,000 grand prize, to overnight hotels stays, travel packages, fine jewelry, gift cards, furniture, and more. This event helps raise nearly $200,000 for The Center’s mission of helping all people live in peace and brings together our community. The race begins at 2pm, with free family fun beginning at noon!
