Join the Columbus Education Foundation on Saturday, May 18 for the inaugural Columbus Duck Derby! Proceeds from the Columbus Duck Derby will support scholarships and classroom grants for teachers and students in Columbus ISD. 

Purchase your ducks for a chance to win! The first 3 ducks to cross the finish line will win gift cards valued at $1,000 (1st place), $500 (2nd place), and $250 (3rd place). Only 3,000 ducks will be sold so grab yours today before they’re all gone! 

Ducks will be launched from the East River Bridge at 11:00 a.m. and will float down the Colorado River to the finish line at Beason’s Park. Which ducks will finish the fastest? We can’t wait to find out! 

Be an even bigger part of the Columbus Duck Derby by becoming a sponsor! Sponsors will receive recognition on event signage, the CEF website and social media feeds, and complimentary ducks in the race.
