Annual COSMIC Rubber Duck Race

Annual COSMIC Rubber Duck Race

The annual COSMIC Rubber Duck Race will return to the Regent’s Canal this summer to raise much needed funds for St Mary’s hospital.

Starting at 12:30pm on Thursday 29th July, 500 rubber ducks will launch onto the water from St. Mary’s Bridge and bob for 100 metres to the finish line at Paddington Basin.

This is the sixth year the annual Duck Race will be held and spectators can sponsor a duck for £3 by visiting the Just Giving page (website link below).

The winning duck will win their sponsor a pair of Eurostar tickets and second place will win a 2-hour boat ride with GoBoat.

Money raised from sponsoring a rubber duck will help COSMIC to support the Children’s Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Units at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington and Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in Hammersmith. COSMIC charity helps patients and their families by enabling the dedicated team to treat hundreds of critically ill children and babies from all over London each year.
