The Utica National Insurance Group in New Hartford held its annual "Duck Days" duck races on Wednesday.

Employees purchased plastic ducks, which were dropped into the creek next to the Utica National Complex.

The ducks "raced" to the finish and several heats were held, giving employees a chance to win prizes.  Employees also got to enjoy an extended lunch hour.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

Utica National is a long-time supporter of CMN and conducts fundraisers throughout the year to support the organization.
