URS Rubber Duck Regatta

United Rehabilitation Services of Greater Dayton (URS) offers a wide-array of programs with a variety of goal-centered activities, focused on enhancing the physical, social, and emotional needs of children, adults and seniors with developmental or acquired disabilities from throughout the Greater Dayton Region.


Since 1956 when URS was founded, we have impacted the lives of thousands of individuals and their families by continually expanding the scope of our services to meet their growing and ever-changing needs. Ultimately, our efforts focus on increasing skills, enhancing functional abilities and maximizing the level of independence of the people we serve.


One of their main fundraisers is the Rubber Duck Regatta in which 20,000 Rubber Ducks drop from the bridge at RiverScape MetroPark for a race to the finish for great prizes! 100% of every duck adopted benefits kids & adults with disabilities!   Pictured here is Eli Sperry dressed up in a duck suit after collecting more than double his original fundraising goal from donations by our PS&E team.  Thank you to Eli Sperry for being involved this year and committing to be on the URS Planned Giving Committee in 2019.
