Join Us for the 21st Annual Rubber Duck Regatta presented by AES Ohio!

Welcome to the splashiest event of the year! United Rehabilitation Services is thrilled to invite you to the 21st Annual Rubber Duck Regatta presented by AES Ohio! This beloved community tradition isn’t just about watching thousands of rubber ducks race down the river – it’s a powerful way to make a real difference in the lives of local children and adults with disabilities!

Why Is This Event So Important?

Every duck adopted in this race funds essential programs and services at URS, helping us serve close to 1,000 clients annually, providing everything from pediatric therapy with on-site nursing to adult vocational training and employment services! Your participation means more than just fun; it changes lives, offering hope and opportunities to those we serve.

Meet Fiona, our Regatta Ambassador!

Your support helps children and adults like Fiona. When Fiona arrived in this world, she was a tiny bundle of determination. Born a fighter with Down syndrome and two congenital heart defects, she weighed just 5lbs 7oz but carried the strength of a warrior. At URS’ Five Star Child Care Center, Fiona found a nurturing environment where her spirit could soar. With access to comprehensive developmental therapies, Fiona has been navigating her journey through GI issues, sleep apnea, a movement disorder, and conductive hearing loss.

How Can You Participate?

Adopt A Duck: Adopt a single duck – or a flock of ducks – for your chance to win one of 8 great prizes!

Volunteer: Join us for duck cleaning and tagging before the event; at the Holiday at Home Festival to help support duck adoptions; or during the Regatta itself on the riverbanks for a day of excitement!

Sponsor: Businesses and individuals can gain visibility while supporting a great cause!
