Adopt Ducks and Support Advocates for Children

Duck Derby 2023

The 21st and Final Duck Derby

On May 13, 2023, after 21 years of celebrating Duck Derby, Advocates for Children celebrated Quacky’s Final Ride. 20,000 rubber ducks were dumped into Euharlee Creek to race for the grand prize of $10,000. We are grateful to everyone who adopted a duck, sponsored our Duck Derby, and supported Advocates for Children over the past two decades. We were excited to send Quacky down the river one last time and we look forward to making more memories with families in our community in the future.
