Duck Derby is Back

Mark your calendars — the 4th Annual Duck Derby is back for another day of fundraising fun! 

Hosted at the Nashville Shores, the proceeds from this event will be used to help place more Chemo Ducks into the hands of young cancer patients in need.

A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the donor whose rubber duck is the first to cross the finish line. Additionally, 24 Chemo Ducks will be donated to the hospital of the Duck Derby winner’s choice.

Along with the main Duck Derby event, there will also be family-friendly games and activities throughout the day, including a scavenger hunt and duck face contest. Door prizes will also be available.

Duck Derby’s Record-Breaking Success

The third annual Duck Derby was a monumental success! Although it was an incredibly hot day in Nashville, the park experienced record-breaking crowds. Prior to the race we sold 1,200 ducks and during the race, we sold another 300 ducks! Our grand total of 1,500 ducks sold was the biggest number to date. The event raised enough to supply 300 children with Chemo Ducks. 

Riley Bria was an incredible addition to this year’s event. He played songs from his upcoming album and “wowed” the crowd with his talent.

The six-foot rubber duck was also a huge hit along with visits from the Chemo Duck mascot and Freckles the Frog. The children were thrilled to say the least!

We were honored to partner with Nashville Shores on this fun family event. We are also extremely grateful for our growing number of sponsors including Jackson National Life Insurance, B.L. Harbert, StoneTree Mulch Gravel and More, Williamson Pediatric Dentistry, AMP&M Specialties, Crain Construction, Doster Construction and Nashville Publicity Group.
