About the Duck Race

2016 marks the 28th year for the Weigand Construction Duck Race to Benefit SCAN. On May 2, 2016 we will kick off the event and in just 7 short weeks we will sell more than 18,000 ducks with the help of volunteers, local businesses, staff, and our many community events. On the evening of June 18th, hundreds of people will come to Johnny Appleseed Park for fun and games and to watch the plastic ducks splash into the St. Joseph River and “paddle” their way to the finish line!

Each plastic duck represents a raffle number and the top 25 ducks will win cash and prizes. Proceeds from the event will support SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect) in its many programs that support our mission to protect children, prepare parents, strengthen families, and educate our community to Stop Child Abuse and Neglect. Our 2016 goal is to raise more than $202,000!
