Morse Data Adopts Ducks to Benefit the Special Olympics

Quack! Quack! 35,000 yellow rubber ducks will splash into the Chicago River from the Columbus Drive Bridge in downtown Chicago and race down river towards the finish line starting at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 9th, 2012.

The Rubber Ducky Derby is the annual signature fundraising event that benefits the Illinois Special Olympics.

This year we’ve adopted a duck for each of our employees and you can adopt one, too — just visit to learn how to enter the race. The cost to adopt a single duck is $5.00 or you can purchase a Quack Pack at $25.00 which consists of buying 5 ducks and getting 1 duck free.

In addition to the pride and glory of winning the race and beating out 34,999 ducks, you also have a chance to win several nice prizes including a 2012 Chevy Equinox LS and a Caribbean Vacation.

Please join us in supporting the Special Olympics and the Windy City Rubber Ducky Derby. Hopefully the 35,000 yellow rubber ducks will “Get InOrder” and ours will swim the fastest and win the race. Wish us luck — and please do join in the fun for this great cause!
