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.

Over 15 corporate ducks raced down the White River in support the Child Advocacy Center during the Ducky Derby which was rescheduled for Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 5:30pm. The race was held on the Washington Street Bridge, downtown Muncie, adjacent to Tuhey Park in conjunction with the Bridge Dinner.

The duck pluck had 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!
