Child Advocacy Center Director Sharon De Boer, said the 7th Annual Duck Derby will be May 17 at Sports*Com, located at 120 DeJarnette Lane in Murfreesboro. The Rutherford Parent Spring Kids Fest begins at 11 a.m., the Corporate Duck Race is at 1 p.m., the first duck heats begin at 2 p.m., and the winner’s race will be held at 4:04 p.m.
“The Child Advocacy Center has incredible community support for the Duck Derby,” De Boer said. “The Board of Directors and staff are very grateful to the 675 businesses all over Rutherford and Cannon County that put Duck Derby posters in their windows, duck adoption forms on their counters, and are helping sell ducks. Those businesses are helping the Child Advocacy Center make a difference in the lives of abused children in our community.”
Proceeds from the Duck Derby will support the Child Advocacy Center services for child abuse victims and the “Darkness to Light” trainings to educate parents, grandparents, and professionals how to protect children from child sexual abuse.
