Meridian’s Ducky Derby is a community event focused on the awareness and prevention of child abuse. Proceeds benefit the Child Advocacy Center (CAC), housed at the Suzanne Gresham Center. CAC is one of only four centers in the state that has received full national accreditation by the National Children's Alliance. It is the only CAC housed within a children's treatment center, providing counseling to aid in recovery.

Corporate ducks race down the White River in support of the Child Advocacy Center in the Ducky Derby Race Saturday, August 24 starting at 10 a.m. The race is held at the Tillotson Street Bridge, in Muncie, adjacent to Suzanne Gresham Center.

The duck pluck has over $3,000 in raffle prizes! Duck pluck ducks could win a Bahama Cruise for two, kid’s bike from Kirk’s Bike Shop, gift cards, and much more!

Raffle ducks may be purchased for a chance to win great prizes!
