Merryman House
9th Annual PaDucky Derby
Paducah, Kentucky

The Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center will hold its annual PaDucky Derby Duck Race on October 21, 2023 at 3 p.m. at Montgomery Lake within Bob Noble Park Pond in Paducah, KY. The race is presented by Humana Healthy HorizonsTM in Kentucky.

All proceeds from the PaDucky Derby will benefit the Merryman House, a non-profit organization which offers both residential and outreach services to meet the needs of victims of intimate partner abuse and their dependents as they strive to live free of violence. The Merryman House is a comprehensive advocacy and support center that is devoted to addressing the needs of survivors.

Each duck adopted will go directly to Saving, Building and Changing the lives of those affected by domestic violence. And, this race would not be possible without our generous sponsors. Special thanks to Humana Healthy HorizonsTM in Kentucky, and to our Flight Sponsors, Paducah Elks Lodge 217 and Cornerstone of Hope. This race would not get off the ground without you! Please check out all of our wonderful sponsors below and support them as they support us!
