Duck! Wow...First, there is Chicken Run, then we will have the Fox Run, then the Rat Race and now, we have the Duck Race. More and more furry and feathery animals are making names for the race events. What’s next? Kerengga Climb? Burung Punai Race? Harimau Kumbang Run? Kuda Belang Kote Besar kayuh-thon? Heheh! In this duck race, there is no running or walking involved. Just floating. However, Yuan Yu Fang will not be seen floating in this race (wink!) as all the floating will be done by the ducks. Not the real ones but rubber ducks. All 100,000 of them. I wonder if they are made of the famous Malaysian rubber? The fourth Kuala Lumpur Charity Duck Race aims to raise at least RM1 million for charity race set on Sept 4. Participants can adopt a plastic duck for RM18 each and they will get a randomly selected number for a yellow or red duck. The ducks will be released into the Gombak River at Jalan Putra and the first to reach the Masjid Jamek two kilometres down river will enable the adoptee to take home the first prize. The race is expected to last 45 minutes, depending on weather conditions The first yellow duck to reach the final point will win its adoptee RM10,000. If the duck that crosses the line first happens to be red, the RM10,000 prize will be added to the original prize. Wah! That’s a lot of CDs I can buy with that cash…. Prizes will also be given out to the first 50 ducks that successfully completes the race. Majlis Kanser Nasional has joined the beneficiary list along with Kiwanis Down’s Syndrome this year. Adoption certificates are available at all Watsons outlets, Kiwanis centres or at scheduled road shows nationwide as listed on www.klduckrace.com.
