More than 6,000 abused children have been served during the past 10 years at the Child Advocacy Centers in Rutherford and Cannon counties. The children and their families learn to heal through the services.
The annual Duck Derby raises funds for the non-profit CAC to keep proving the services for children.
Ten thousand ducks will be dropped into Stones River at the Sportsman’s Club June 11. People who adopt the first ducks to cross the finish line will receive prizes. The grand prize is $5,000 with other prize packages such as a trip to Orange Beach, Ala., and Gatlinburg.
