Home Newsroom 235. VIDEO: JourneyCare Duck Races Support Children’s Hospice Care

Hundreds of people showed up to support children who benefit from JourneyCare’s pediatric hospice and palliative care programs at the Barrington Park District pool this weekend.  JourneyCare’s annual Duck Races have become a favorite summer tradition and this year’s event raised $45,000.  For some fun in the sun supporting a great local cause, guests of all ages adopt ducks that are sent racing down the pool’s slide for a chance to win prizes… all while raising funds to help children in need of end-of-life care, pain and symptom management.

Reporter James Owen and filmer Tommy Derken made a splash, in the truest sense of the word, while capturing the event on camera for 365BarringtonTV.  Not only did they send their waterproof camera down the slide with the ducks, they jumped in the water to capture some great video AND convinced people (including JourneyCare Foundation Director Jason Leppin) to do their best duck impersonations on camera…

JourneyCare provides compassionate end-of-life care, pain and symptom management to 900 patients a day in ten Illinois counties making every moment count for those touched by serious illness and loss.  For more information about JourneyCare’s programs, including their pediatric support and services, visit JourneyCare.com.

And thank you to Barrington’s Bob Lee for capturing the Duck Races on camera as he does every year.  If you missed this year’s party, Bob’s helping highlight the cause by bringing the event to you through the lens of his camera.  Thanks for sharing, Bob!
