The third annual Little Apple Duck Dash begins at 9:00 a.m. CDT at CiCo Park Sledding Hill.  The day will be filled with food, games and fun.  The highlight of the day will be watching a total of 5,000 yellow ducks race down the sledding hill for one of three top positions to win a prize. The ducks launch at 11:30 a.m.  The grand prize winner will win $1,000 cash and the 2nd place winner goes home with $750 cash.  The third place winner gets a $500 shopping spree at Manhattan Town Center.

All proceeds from the Little Apple Duck Dash benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Manhattan which operates nine Club locations in Manhattan and Wamego and serves over 2,500 children annually.  Their mission is to inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens through programs that focus on Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles.

What can one duck do? A single duck provides a week of after school snacks for a club member.  A quack pack adoption of 6 ducks provides an annual teen membership plus a field trip.  A Flock of Ducks adoption of 12 ducks will provide an after school semester scholarship for a club member.
