The mood was buoyant at Human Resources’ 8th Annual Duck Race for the United Way of Greater Victoria Nov. 19 as small but intrepid ducks representing staff and departments across campus battled for victory along the fish ladders near Esquimalt Lagoon.

The event raised $750 for this year’s United Way campaign. Thanks go to the 100.3 the Q radio station’s Cliff LeQuesne for on-site race commentary, and Starbucks for their coffee donation.

The winners are:

1st prize: Krista Fletcher - one night in a suite at the Royal Scot Hotel

2nd prize: Charles Krusekopf - hair cut, style and products from Cabello Salon

3rd prize: Sarah from Habitat - $25.00 GC for Bubby’s Kitchen
