Alpha Phi Omega will hold its annual Duck Race event to raise money for the Hungry Huskies on April 24 behind the NIU Public Radio Station.

The Hungry Huskies provide free meals to students and community members in DeKalb and Sycamore every Sunday at the Holmes Student Center, according to the Duck Race for Hungry Huskies GoFundMe page.

The event sells hundreds of rubber ducks around DeKalb and Chicagoland to race down the Kishwaukee River. The first place winner is awarded $250, second place is $100, and third is $75.

Ducks can be purchased for racing through the GoFundMe page at a cost of $1 for one duck or $5 for six ducks. Donations can also be made without participating in the race, and participants don’t need to be present for the race to enter ducks.
