How to help JourneyCare and its mission

  • Emma Tucker of Downers Grove and her family enjoy a day in the sun with other All About Kids pediatric care program families at JourneyCare's annual Duck Race and Pool Party last summer at Barrington's Langendorf Park. A free event that is open to the public, the Duck Race and Pool Party features plastic ducks that race down the slides to victory. Attendees "adopt" the ducks for $5 a piece and win prizes. Proceeds benefit the All About Kids program.
