Annual Campaign Is Just “Ducky” for Clinics at Greene County Combined Health District

(Xenia, OH) Various restaurants and businesses are turning yellow this month in an effort to help keep kids healthy in Greene County. It’s time for the annual Adopt-a-Healthy Duck campaign.

Racing ducks are available for adoption for $5 each and can be adopted at many of the local banks in Greene County as well as at GCCHD located at 360 Wilson Drive in Xenia. Ducks will race across the pond at Clifton Mill on Sunday, August 26th at 2:00 p.m. for an exciting race to the finish. Prizes on tap for the top race finishers include:

  • 1st Place: $500 Cash
  • 2nd Place: $200 travel certificate from Beavercreek AAA
