Wood County Plays is holding its second annual Rubber Duck Drop in April, and all funds raised will go to an inclusive playground in Carter Park.

Bowling Green, Ohio. Lots of snow is forecast lately, but one April day it will rain from rubber ducks!

Wood County Plays spends the second annual Rubber duck fundraising to help build an inclusive playground at Carter Park in Bowling Green.

For $ 5 you can buy a duck to win cash prizes. Each duck will be numbered, lifted into the air and dropped on a giant apple tree right in Carter Park.

Prizes will be awarded to owners of ducks that land closest to the center of the apple. The winner receives a prize of $ 500, the second – $ 250, and the third – $ 100. You can get your ducks in a row by donating on Wood County Plays 2nd Annual Rubber Duck Drop Website from now until April 16th.

Wood County Plays believes that children with all abilities should be able to play together safely. WTOL 11 meteorologist Ryan Wickman is president of Wood County Plays and saw firsthand the need for inclusive playgrounds, motivated by the fact that his son Grant had a hard time maneuvering his walker on other playgrounds.

Seeing Grant’s frustration at not being able to play with other children without needing help, he inspired Wichman to found Wood County Plays and work on creating the first inclusive playground in Perrysburg. Working with a team that includes other parents whose children have also experienced difficulties with existing playgrounds, and with community donations of more than $ 800,000, the inclusive Perrysburg playground has become a reality.

The site opened last summer in Rotary Park.

Wichman will serve as host for Rubber duck at Carter Park on April 23 at 9 p.m.

You don’t need to attend to win and the event will be broadcast live Wood County Plays Facebook page.
