More than 5,000 rubber duckies raced a closed circuit in the Holston River Saturday to raise money for the Hawkins County Boys and Girls Club.
SURGOINSVILLE - Through the hard work and determination of the Boys and Girls Club Board, more than 5,000 ducks were sponsored at $5 each for Saturday's ducks race fundraiser at Surgoinsville's Riverfront Park.
The Boys and Girls Club wishes to thank everyone who participated including the Kingsport's Club, staff, and sponsors.
According to reports, several hundred ducks jumped the boundary and tried to swim for "freedom" but thanks the quick efforts of the rescue team who went after them the stray ducks returned to the fold.
