MAPLEWOOD, NJ — The South Mountain YMCA 2019 Duck Race on Memorial Day, May 27, was a resounding success, drawing large crowds into Memorial Park for this nostalgic event. This year, the duck race raised $23,914 that will help change children’s lives. More than 75 percent of the proceeds goes to the Financial Assistance Program for childcare, summer camp and youth development programs at the YMCA; more than $5,000 will be used to send more than 100 children from YCS group homes on three trips.
