It’s time for the 8th Annual Great Eastern Iowa Duck Race! Following this year's distribution of funds, we will pass the $500,00 mark in providing donations to children in our community and in Las Trincheras, El Salvador. Learn more about how you can help!


Daybreak Rotary has kicked off adoptions for the 8th Annual Great Eastern Iowa Duck Race,  taking place on June 18th, 2pm, at Noelridge Park in Cedar Rapids.  You’re just a click away from winning one of many great prizes including a chance at $10,000!

Daybreak Rotary is pleased to announce that for the 8th year in a row, because of our great sponsors, ALL of the duck adoption proceeds will go back to our beneficiaries.  To date, the Duck Race has given back over $450,000 into our community! By adopting a duck you are supporting the YouthPort, (a partnership between the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids, Young Parents Network and Tanager Place), Big Brothers Big Sisters, LBA Foundation, the John Cushing Sunshine Grant Fund and the ESNA Daybreak Rotary Project.
The overall goal of the race is to sell 15,000 ducks!  Learn more at
