The 13th Annual YESS Duck Derby
Presented by Academy Roofing & Sheet Metal Co. has been CANCELED.

The safety of our supporters, volunteers, and staff is our number one priority! At this time the 13th Annual YESS Duck Derby has been canceled for 2020 out of an abundance of caution. The event will be back in 2021- bigger and better than ever! Thank you to all of our sponsors and community partners for your support and understanding.

The YESS Duck Derby will be back next year to celebrate 13 years of spec-quack-ular fun, and we need YOU to “join the flock” and help kids in crisis! For as little as $5, your donation enters you to win fantastic prizes and helps children find safety and care at YESS - Iowa’s largest emergency shelter for kids.

Join us in 2021, when you can enjoy free family-friendly entertainment including live performances, activity booths, inflatables, games, and other outdoor activities for kids of all ages. Cheer your rubber duck on to victory as it races across the lake with thousands of other lucky duckies. The first ten to cross the finish line will win fabulous prizes. You don't have to be present to win, but you won't want to miss this quack-tastic event!

All proceeds benefit Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS). YESS provides a safe haven and network of services designed to care for kids when they need it most. Under our roof, kids receive a warm bed, full tummy, and access to a variety of services that help them heal during a difficult time. In addition, we work with hundreds of families in the community to keep kids safe, healthy, and happy in their own homes.
