The 14th annual Rubber Duck Regatta kicked off Saturday at the Austin Landing Kroger in Miami Twp.

For the next eight weeks, you can buy a duck at any area Kroger store.

Money raised through the race, presented by Synchrony Financial, benefits United Rehabilitation Services of Greater Dayton, an organization that supports children and adults with disabilities.

This Rubber Duck Regatta campaign culminates in September with 20,000 rubber ducks getting dropped into the Great Miami River from the Riverside Drive Bridge at RiverScape MetroPark, 237 E. Monument Ave. in Dayton, during the Hispanic Heritage Festival.

Prized will be awarded to the top eight ducks in the race. Prizes include a seven-bedroom houseboat vacation from Norris Lake Household Rentals; $1,000 gift card to Kroger and more.
