Two Fun Ways To Do Good This Month

Two ways to get out and enjoy a South County weekend and while doing some good.


What’s quacking? On April 25, 20,000 rubber ducks will be dumped in the Pawcatuck River all at once for the 17th Annual Pawcatuck River Duck Race. The race will benefit over 40 local charities and schools. Tap in to your inner foodie and enjoy great food from a multitude of food booths, get adventurous and go on a ride (maybe not in that order), participate in fun children’s games or buy a duck for a chance to win prizes! 37 Main Street, Westerly. 596-7761.

Enjoy long walks on the beach? How about a long run on the beach? Lace up those running shoes on April 26 for The Rhode Island State Police 5K Foot Pursuit. This race is a fun beach 5K that benefits the Rhode Island State Police Charitable Fund. You don’t have to be Usain Bolt to participate in the race. Support the RI State Police by registering to run. $20-$35. 10am. North Beach Pavilion at Narragansett Town Beach, Narragansett.
