More than 18,000 plastic duckies will race to the finish in the Weigand Construction Duck Race to Benefit SCAN. Sponsors of the first 26 ducks – one for each year of the race - to cross the finish line win great prizes, all donated and valued at $100 or more. The first place winner is guaranteed $5,000 cash courtesy of the presenting sponsor, Weigand Construction. In addition to the first place cash prize, the first duck to float across the finish line will be eligible for a chance to win the $1,000,000 Chance Cash Prize, Payable as a 40-Year Annuity. Second place will win $1,000 cash courtesy of Beacon Credit Union and third place will receive $500 cash donated by Strahm Building Solutions. Duck sponsors do not have to be present at the race to win, but we encourage the community to join us on Race Day, June 21 along the St. Joseph River in Johnny Appleseed Park!

This year’s fundraising goal for the Duck Race is the highest yet at $168,500! To date, the agency has raised just over $70,000. Proceeds from this signature fundraiser underwrite SCAN’s programs and services that protect children from abuse and neglect in 19 northeast and north central Indiana counties; 97 cents of every dollar raised goes directly toward programming. In 2013, SCAN impacted the lives of more than 15,500 children and adults.
