Psi Chi, the psychology honor society, is hosting a rubber ducky derby race Wednesday to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The foundation is a nonprofit that creates programs on suicide prevention, funds research and has a support group for those who have lost someone to suicide.

The derby is a race of rubber duckies that will float down Big Chico Creek from the Holt Hall bridge to the Gauntlet.

The event is open to the public, and those who choose to sponsor a duck can sign up eat the Psi Chi table, Modoc 215 or the day of the race at the Gauntlet. The cost is $3 for students and $5 for non-students.

The ducks that land the top places will be awarded prizes such as:

  • 50 Bear Bucks
  • Two dinner entrees at Tres Hombres
  • Three $10 Pita Pit gift cards
  • Two $10 Gogi’s Cafe gift cards
  • A $20 Sol gift card
  • A Barnes & Noble gift card

The race starts at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
