Sudbury, MA – More than 3000 rubber ducks will be splishing and splashing at the Grist Mill at the Wayside Inn on Monday, September 7th, at 12 p.m, as Bullfinchs Restaurant sponsors it’s sixth annual Rubber Duck Race. Proceeds from the duck race will benefit the Child Life Services Program at UMass Memorial Medical Center.
Bullfinchs owner Peggy and Scott Richardson were first-hand witnesses to the love, support, and care the Program provides to families, when Scott’s then three year old daughter and Peggy’s granddaughter Maddy became sick more than 10 years ago. The first race was held in the Summer of 2004 and each year, more and more participants purchase ducks and watch them race for this amazing cause. “It was through our personal involvement with this project that we were inspired to do what we could to support The Child Life Program and show our gratitude,” says Peggy. “We encourage everyone young and old to join us for the fun, exciting and rewarding event!”
