CUDGEN Creek will be a sea of colour next month all in the name of charity.

Rotary Club of Kingscliff is holding the 2012 Kingscliff Kayak/Stand Up Paddle and Duck Race in on in October to raise money for the Cudgen Surf Life Saving Club and upgrading the Ed Parker Rotary Park.

Event organiser Nathan Williams said this was the inaugural race in what the Rotary Club was hoping to become an annual event.

"(We choose Cudgen Creek because) it's the heart of Kingscliff and the park on the edge of the creek is a Rotary park," Mr Williams said.

"We have 55 of the 75 corporate ducks sold."

The event will race 1200 individual plastic ducks and 75 corporate ducks down Cudgen Creek on October 28, and is expected to raise about $10,000.

The day starts with a SUP and kayak event from 9am, immediately followed by the duck race.

Entry forms for the paddle events will be available from rotaryduckrace.com.au or Tim at Watersports Guru, at the fig tree roundabout in Kingscliff.

Ducks can be purchased online or in store at Rory Curtis' The Good Guys South Tweed, Tim at Watersports Guru or from Tweed City Shopping between September 29 to October 5 and October 19 to 24.

Community Ducks are only $5 each or the larger corporate ducks are $50
