What is the Southern Ducky Derby Dash? It's a signature annual fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics Illinois! In it's 7th year, spectators will watch 10,000 or more yellow rubber ducks splash into the lake at Walker's Bluff Winery in Carterville, IL and race to the finish line in person. The race will take place on Saturday October 2, 2022*. All proceeds benefit more than 1600 athletes across southern Illinois.

Please buy a duck from our Ducky Derby Dash team so we can track how much good the softball community does for the athletes who compete in Special Olympics IL.

The Top Seller will receive a $100 gift card AND THEIR TEAM WILL HAVE FREE GATE FEES with Play It Forward Sportz for the entire 2023 season!!

The 2nd Place Seller will receive a $50 gift card and 1 FREE TOURNAMENT (not 7 in the Spring) for their team with Play It Forward Sportz during the 2023 season.

The 3rd Place Seller will receive a $25 gift card and 1 FREE TOURNAMENT SHIRT FOR THEIR ENTIRE TEAM, up to 12 players, (not tie dye) for a (1) Play It Forward Sportz event during the 2023 season.

At the conclusion of the All State Games, we will continue to sell ducks in an effort to raise money for the Duck Derby and Special Olympics. Play It Forward Sportz will give 1 FREE TOURNAMENT (not 7 in the Spring) to the team who sells the most amount of ducks AFTER the All State Games. That free event is good for 1 free tournament (not 7 in the Spring) with Play It Forward Sportz during the 2023 season.
