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.

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

The corporate race is followed by a "duck pluck" with 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!

Purchase raffle ducks for a chance to win a children's bicycle from Kirk's Bike Shop! The Trek Precaliber 20" Kids' bike (blue) and Trek Precaliber 24" Kids' bike (white) will be given away during the Duck Pluck at Meridian's Fam Fest!
