Founded by a group of “Miracle Families,” the Lucky Duck Miracle Derby is an annual charity event that raises money and awareness for the Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
Every dollar raised from the Lucky Duck Miracle Derby will go directly toward patient services, research, equipment and educational resources at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
How the Race Works
The Lucky Duck Miracle Derby’s main event is the duck derby race where ducks are poured into a nearby creek and race to the finish line. The three fastest ducks are rewarded cash prizes of $250, $150, and $100.
You can purchase a single duck for a $5 donation, or 5 ducks for $20. You do not have to be present on derby day to race in this event.
More Ways to Donate
- purchase an event T-shirt for $7 (adult and youth sizes available, sizes S-XXL)
- simply donate any amount if you do not wish to participate in the duck race
*Green, black, and light blue shirts are from 2015.
