YESS Duck Derby 2018

The YESS Duck Derby presented by Academy Roofing & Sheet Metal of the Midwest, is back to celebrate 11 years of spec-quack-ular fun! This event has raised more than $2.5 million to date, all to support kids in crisis. We need YOU to join the flock and help make this our most quack-tastic race yet!

Adopt

a duck for as little as a $5 donation to YESS. Every duck adoption provides hope to children in crisis and enters you for a chance to win fabulous prizes including $10,000 cash, courtesy of PDM Precast Inc.

Once you’ve adopted your ducks, watch them race across the Jordan Creek Town Center lake on Saturday, May 5th. The family fun starts at noon and includes live performances, food samples, inflatables, and outdoor activities for kids of all ages. At 2pm, cheer on thousands of rubber ducks at they race across the lake. If your duck is one of the first 10 to cross the finish line, you’ll be the lucky duck who takes home a prize!

Event proceeds support YESS, Iowa’s largest and most comprehensive provider of emergency services for kids (newborn through age 17). Duck adoptions directly support YESS' mission to provide shelter, food, emergency services, counseling, and other support to our community’s most vulnerable children.
