SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The ducks are getting ready for the annual Duck Race to End Racism next month.
Organizations from around Onondaga County picked up their sponsorship packets on Friday.
Quackers, the Duck Race mascot, was also on hand for a special appearance.
The annual Duck Race brings together elementary classes and youth organizations for a day of fun to support Interfaith Works El-Hindi center for Dialogue.
“We want to celebrate working on ending racism is very hard work. People have to dig deeply in themselves, they have to look at how they were raised, what happened to them in their own society, in their homes, in their schools, in their workplaces. And so people have to dig deep on this,” said Beth Broadway, President and CEO of Interfaith Works.
The Duck Race will be held at the Syracuse Inner Harbor on Saturday, June 8th from 12 to 4 p.m.
