Cash prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250 will be awarded to the first, second and third-place finishers of the duck race, respectively, and additional prizes for participants will include an IceHogs suite for one game during the 2018-19 hockey season, game-worn memorabilia, an autographed IceHogs stick and several tickets to Hogs home games for the upcoming campaign.
A portion of this year's proceeds will benefit local charities, including Rockford Fourt of July and Holiday Lighting efforts, the Rock River Trail Initiative and the Ski Broncs.
