Hundreds of rubber ducks floated to the finish line once again on April 29 as part of an effort by Surrey’s Hook and Ladder Pub to raise money for Surrey Memorial Hospital.

Since 1992, the pub has donated more than $42,000 to Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation during this annual fundraiser.

Rubber ducks that are sold by the pub to its patrons are set afloat in the nearby creek in a race to the finish line.
