Duck Race

Grand Riv-Har Duck Race Fundraiser

The Annual Grand Riv-Har Duck race is a really fun way to raise funds for both the Riverside and Harvey Alumni Associations.

Created with GIMP

The annual race is held at Helen Hazen Wyman Park the first Saturday morning after the the first Riverside home game each fall. Festivities start at 11 AM.

The 2019 Annual Grand Riv-Har Duck Race was held September 7. The winner was Marg Barb, a long-time teacher in the system, now retired. The event raised $4,300 for the RHSAA that will be used for scholarships for Riverside seniors

Beginning in the summer of 2020, you can purchase tickets from Riverside or Harvey Alumni Association Members. They can also be purchased in the Duck Race Booth at the Painesville Party in the Park and at the first Football Tailgate party before the first home game. For more information, call 440-352-1339.

Thousands of dollars in scholarships to graduates of both schools have already been awarded because of this fundraiser.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the 2020 Duck Race. If you would like to help, please contact:
