BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

A local group is looking to raise money to fight child abuse in Mid-Michigan.

Preventing child abuse is as simple as adopting a duck and casting it down the Kawkawlin River Saturday, August 17 during the CAN Council Ducky Derby 2013.

Thousands of plastic ducks will begin their race to the finish line at 10 a.m. from the docks of Bay City's Castaways Bar & Grill.

Adoptive parents of the first 10 ducks to cross the finish line will waddle away with prizes, including a $1,000 cash award. Cheer your duck to victory while children enjoy activities, games & prizes from 9-11 a.m.

The public is encouraged to adopt a duck for $5. Increase your odds of winning by purchasing a Six Quack for $25, a Ducky Dozen for $50 or a Max Quack of 25 for $100. You need not be present at the Derby to win.

Purchasing your duck in advance ensures it will enter the race! Ducks are available now at CAN Council offices and Castaways Bar & Grill. Ducks may also be adopted at the event.

Proceeds from the Ducky Derby benefit CAN's Child Abuse Prevention Education programs working to prevent child abuse through presentations, trainings and collaborations with other agencies.

For more Derby information, check out CAN's website here or their Duck Derby Facebook page.
