We would like to thank all of our wonderful sponsors for making it possible for all of the money raised by this year’s race to go toward The Center’s services and programs.
The Center for Prevention of Abuse staff would also like to thank everyone from the city of East Peoria for helping us put on another very successful race. Mayor Dave Mingus, Doug McCarty and the entire crew at Eastside Centre, Rick Swan from the East Peoria Chamber of Commerce, the members of the East Peoria Fire Department and so many others helped make the planning and execution of the race very easy! We appreciate all of their support from offering up the facility to the use of fire equipment to help make the race so impressive. We would also like to thank Mike Baynard. He is a champion for The Center in so many ways and has been a driving force behind years of successful duck races. Thanks to a great group of volunteers and staff members, the 28th Annual Duck Race has been a huge success!
