The Redding Ducky Derby Race is a unique event designed as a fund-raising opportunity for the Rotary Foundation Against Substance Abuse and local youth groups. Since inception over $3 million has been returned to local communities for Youth Development programs and Drug and Alcohol Free activities. These programs have benefited countless young people in the North State.

What makes this event truly unique is the structure. The students participate by selling the tickets, and receive the direct result of their own efforts. The Foundation guarantees 80% of each dollar is returned to the schools groups. However, The past ten years the Foundation has returned 100% of ticket sales back to the Schools and Youth Clubs. The adults are there to support the students, but require them to make an effort as well. This is a perfect win-win deal.

To purchase tickets click here ,  ask any Redding East Rotarian or your favorite student.
