What is the Duck Derby?
The Communities In Schools Duck Derby is a "must see" event where hundreds of numbered rubber ducks are launched into the Chickamauga Creek in Ringgold at the five points area. These rubber ducklings will then race toward the finish line to win great prizes for their adoptive parents. If your lucky duck is the first to cross the finish line, you will win the grand prize of $1,000! Additional Prizes will be given away to the next 9 ducks to cross the finish line. And just for purchasing a duck, your name will be entered into a drawing for a 32" TV!
How do I participate?
Adopt as many ducks as you would like by following the instructions under "Purchase Your Duck". After you've made your package selection, you will recieve an email within 48 hours with your "Lucky Duck" number. With each adoption donation, a duck with your "Lucky Duck" number will be entered into the race on your behalf. For example, if you purchase 1 duck then you will have 1 duck entered into the race. If you purchase 5 ducks, you will have 5 ducks entered into the race with your "Lucky Duck" number. You do not need to be present to win, so please be sure to fill out all the required information requested on the order form.
