The Austin Duck Derby will begin with the release of 17,000 rubber ducks into Lady Bird Lake from the Ann Richards Bridge, traveling down to the finish line. Each of these lucky ducks have been "adopted" for $5.00 each, and the first ducks to cross the finish line, will win special prizes for their adoptive "parents". The Derby will be a fun-filled day for the entire family, to enjoy a festival atmosphere featuring children's activities, music, food and entertainment.

Together we hope to raise over $190,000 benefiting the 12,000 youth between the ages of 6 and 18, served by Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area in their 28 clubs and 4 outreach programs. As Austin's leading youth development agency, they are devoted to providing hope and opportunity to all kids, especially those who need them most, as they grow into healthy, responsible, caring young adults.
