About the Ducky Derby

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

The duck pluck had over $3,000 in raffle prizes! Duck pluck ducks could win a Bahamas Cruise, a set of tires from Midas, gift cards, and much more!
