Our annual Duck Derby & Duck-N-Run 5K allows us to raise money to support all of our youth mentoring programs including Big Buddies, Lunch Buddies, Career Quest, and Couples/Community-Based Matches. Our annual Duck Derby encourages individuals to adopt rubber ducks which will be launched into Tawawa Park's Mosquito Creek. The first duck to cross the finish line is the winner of the $1,000 Cash Grand Prize, and the next 12 ducks are the winners of fabulous prize packages bundled together with donations from generous sponsors and local businesses. Immediately following the Duck Derby, we have our annual Duck-N-Run 5K where participants race through scenic Tawawa Park.
In 2018, we had 3,138 ducks adopted, 248 5K participants, and raised $29,182. Our goal for 2019 is 3,500 ducks adopted, 275 5K participants, and raise $33,000! We can achieve this goal, but we can't do it without you!!
