MUNCIE, Ind. – Armed with paddles and straddling giant, inflatable ducks competitors raised awareness for the prevention of child abuse while going head-to-head in the tenth annual Duck Derby race Saturday morning.

The White River race, hosted by Meridian Health Services, raised funds for Meridian’s Child Advocacy Center through donations and corporate sponsors.

This year, the starting line was moved further west along the river and the mini-duck race was replaced by a "Duck Pluck" due to ongoing construction on the Tillotson Avenue bridge.

After the race, the Cowan High School marching band led attendees to the Suzanne Gresham Center for Fam Fest Homecoming.

Fam Fest featured food, live music, free health services, sports clinics and a performance by the Solution Action Sports BMX team.

The Child Advocacy Center provides counseling, family assistance, medical care and child abuse recovery services.
