Ducks flock to Fremont
The 20th annual Ducks for Bucks Benefit Race is a great opportunity for the Tri-City community to support local nonprofit agencies, service organizations, youth sports groups, and schools who are looking to raise big bucks for their many programs. The Kiwanis Club of Fremont organizes and runs the race as a service project to provide additional funding for over 20 local nonprofit groups. Last years race netted over $19,000.

Duck adopters have an opportunity to win great prizes, including a car of your choice from the Fremont Auto Mall up to $30,000 purchase price, $2,000 in cash, an entire year of massage therapy once a week courtesy of Tereo Chiropractic, a beautiful diamond pendant necklace from Chriss Jewelers in Niles and much more.
The athletes are currently working out in Arizona and will be flown to Fremont for the big event. So donÕt miss your opportunity to get your ducks in the water!
