Duck Race

5000 ducks racing on the Bega River. Each of them had an 'adoptive' parent who donated 5 lei for the rehabilitation of this river crossing our city.

It was a big event, the first of its kind in Timisoara, so I'm proud to have been part of the organizing team. At the end of the day, we raised money, and had fun (despite the cold, pouring rain)! Moreover, people gathered on the banks of the river and felt something was, at last, going to be done in order to change the lousy state it's been in for decades. Being a volunteer really fills my life with interesting experiences, and my heart with joy.
