Tanager Place

Don’t forget to adopt your duck!

The Great Eastern Iowa Duck Race is once again upon us!

The duck race, organized and hosted by Cedar Rapids Daybreak Rotary, is now in its 12th year. All proceeds benefit children, and each entrant has an opportunity to win one of several fabulous prizes.

YouthPort – a collaboration between Boys and Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids, Tanager Place and Young Parent’s Network – is one of four beneficiaries. (Last year’s duck race garnered $11,250 for YouthPort, which maximizes the strengths and resources of its collaborators to meet the needs of low-income children and families.)

Single ducks are $5 each, or can be purchased in specially discounted “quack packs.” Visit the the Tanager Place pledge page to adopt your duck! Our goal is 500 ducks, so we gotta get quacking!
