SCAN opens duck season

Ducks will hit the St. Joe River on June 21

It’s a duck season like no other, and it involves plastic ducks that will float down the Saint Joe river on June 21.  The Duck Race to Benefit SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect) has a long history in Fort Wayne.  It brings positive attention, support and results to the difficult topic of child abuse and neglect.  It works like this: everyone who purchases a duck sponsorship will receive a certificate that corresponds with an i.d. on the duck.  On Saturday, June 21 the flock will be released into the Saint Joe river and the first 26 ducks to cross the finish line receive prizes worth a minimum of $100 and up to $5,000 in cash.

The price of a duck sponsorship has stayed the same since the first duck race in 1988.  Now through race day anyone may sponsor a duck for a $5 donation to SCAN. Discounts for sponsoring multiple ducks are available.  All proceeds from the duck sales support SCAN’s life changing programs designed to eliminate child abuse and neglect in 13 counties in northeast Indiana.  Some of the SCAN programs that benefit include Community Partners Network, Prevention Through Education, Healthy Families, Daybreak Crisis Homes and Family Restoration.
