Australia’s Biggest Duck Race for Cancer Research Returns for 2018

Australia’s Biggest Duck Race for Cancer Research will return to the banks of the Brisbane River at Riverside Drive, West End for the 12th consecutive year on Sunday 14 October from 11am – 5pm.

40,000 rubber ducks will flock to water for the show stopper event in the ‘race that quacks a nation’, with the first beaks over the line winning their lucky ticket holder a car, $25,000 cash or a boat.

The fun-filled family day will also feature kids’ rides, Channel 10 live stage shows and activities, live stage music, delicious eats from the Regatta Hotel and Ducks galore!

The event is the PA Research Foundation’s flagship fundraiser for cancer research. Sadly 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. This is a disease which does not discriminate and the PA Research Foundation is committed to supporting break through research to improve diagnostics, preventatives and cancer treatment options.

Thanks to community support through the Duck Race, the PA Research Foundation are funding life-saving research into skin cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, head and neck cancer and bladder cancer. More funding is required to progress these projects to improve the outcomes for patients faced with cancer.

To support this fundraising event, you can purchase a single duck in the race for just $5 or better your odds by purchasing a whole flock! Not only are you giving yourself the chance to win some great prizes, you are helping to fund the next big cancer break through.
