Quack Quack…

The Great Singapore Duck Race is a charity event started in 1998 and held annually until 2003. The public adopted the ducks at S$10 each, and all the ducks would be dumped into Singapore River for the ‘race’. The sponsor of the winning duck would take home S$10,000.

The 2007 race managed to raise S$850,000 for charity causes. The Great Singapore Duck Race holds the world record for racing the largest number of ducks, set in 2002 with more than 123,000 ducks in the water.
