The Duck Race to End Racism is a highlight of the annual free family festival taking place from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 8 at Syracuse’s Inner Harbor, 390 W. Kirkpatrick St. at Solar Street, south of Destiny USA. The event supports the Community Wide Dialogue, a program of InterFaith Works of CNY.
Upstate chose the “Proud to Know” theme for its duck this year as a light-hearted nod to its campaign which recognizes the invaluable work of Upstate employees who devote their careers to patient care, education, research and community service. Employees who are part of the campaign can be seen in television commercials and on posters at both the downtown and community campuses of Upstate University Hospital.
Kristin Thompson, an Upstate intern and former intern at InterFaith Works, will be part of a team of Upstate volunteers who will paint faces at the event. Other face-painters include Susan Keeter who has painted ducks for Upstate Medical University since the inception of the Duck Race 11 years ago.
