Weigand Construction Duck Race to benefit SCAN

About the Duck Race

2019 marks the 31st year for the Weigand Construction Duck Race to Benefit SCAN. On May 1, 2019 we will kick off the event and in just 7 short weeks we will sell more than 19,000 ducks with the help of volunteers, local businesses, staff, and our many community events. On the evening of June 15th, hundreds of people will come to Johnny Appleseed Park for fun and games and to watch the plastic ducks splash into the St. Joseph River and "paddle" their way to the finish line! Each plastic duck represents a raffle number and the top 25 ducks will win cash and prizes.

Although our main office is located in Fort Wayne, we have three satellite offices in the following locations: Logansport, Merrillville, and South Bend. Additionally, SCAN offers services to 34 counties in northern Indiana. Counties include: Adams, Allen, Blackford, Cass, DeKalb, Delaware, Elkhart, Fulton, Grant, Hamilton, Hancock, Howard, Huntington, Jasper, Jay, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Lake, LaPorte, Madison, Marion, Marshall, Miami, Newton, Noble, Pulaski, Randolph, Starke, Steuben, St. Joseph, Tipton, Wabash, Wells, Whitley. Proceeds from the event will directly support SCAN's (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect) services and programs that support our mission to protect children, prepare parents, strengthen families, and educate our community to Stop Child Abuse and Neglect. Our 2019 goal is to raise more than $210,000!
