Meridian’s Ducky Derby is a community event focused on the awareness and prevention of child abuse. This year’s proceeds benefit 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 starts at 10:00am just west of the Tillotson Avenue Bridge on White River.
The corporate race will be followed by a "duck pluck" where your ducks can win great raffle prizes including a Bahama Cruise, a kayak, car detailing, and gift cards.
