Meridian’s Ducky Derby is a community event focused on the awareness and prevention of child abuse. This year’s proceeds benefited the Child Advocacy Center, housed at the Suzanne Gresham Center, in providing sexual abuse prevention education in the schools and throughout the community.

A corporate giant duck race to support the Child Advocacy Center started at 10:00am just west of the Tillotson Avenue Bridge on White River.

The corporate race was followed by a "duck pluck" where your ducks could win great raffle prizes including a Bahama Cruise, a kayak, car detailing, and gift cards.
