CMN Duck Race 2010: Who are this year's lucky ducks?

By Lee Peck - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - On their mark, they were set nearly 5-thousand ducks were off at the annual Children's Miracle Network Duck Race. But they wouldn't make it to the finish without a little help.  A water spraying hose would help them along as hundreds of people watched the progress.

Madeline Langley has a strategy - she purchased two ducks. "Well, I figure one duck for sure couldn't win - so with two ducks you have a better chance. Plus, I just wanted to help," said Langley.  

And even though only eight people took home the top prizes, organizers say everyone is a winner for helping the children in Southwest Louisiana.

"We thank all of our sponsors and everyone who came out today. Because this is how we stay up to date with the latest technology and treatments to help the children in need," said Anna Catherine Viator, with Children's Miracle Network.

The Children's Miracle Network Telethon is set for June 4th and 5th.

And the Winners are:

Grand Prize: Barbara Gayle
