Q: What am I Supporting with my Donation?

The Great Brevard Duck Race is a major fundraiser for Crosswinds Youth Services, a not-for-profit organization that has been serving vulnerable young people and their families in Brevard County for 43 years. Young people throughout Brevard County have turned to Crosswinds for life changing and even lifesaving help. Your help is needed now more than ever to help children, youth and families in crisis.
