Each year, Cedar Rapids Daybreak Rotary produces the Great Eastern Iowa Duck Race: a community-wide, family-friendly, affordable, fun and unique event designed to benefit eastern Iowa organizations that focus on helping children and families. Run exclusively by volunteers, the annual Great Eastern Iowa Duck Race is patterned after a successful duck race held in the 1990′s in our community. This year’s beneficiaries include the Young Parents Network, Jon Cushing Sunshine Foundation, Legacy for Learning and the Daybreak Rotary International Fund.

These organizations focus on educating children and teaching the values of citizenship, character, healthy lifestyle, work ethic, having fun and service to others. Please consider a membership with Daybreak Rotary or a contribution to our annual event. Every dollar or amount of time spent is greatly appreciated.
