Join us for the Canton Duck Race!

On August 17, 2019 we will be launching thousands of ducks into the Etowah River! They will race from the kayak launch at Etowah River Park to a finish line at the foot bridge which connects Etowah River Park to Heritage Park. This duck race will happen in conjunction with the City of Canton River Rock concert series. Come enjoy great music, goodies from the vendors, and help us make a big impact with some little ducks.
This fundraiser is a partnership between Cherokee Youth Foundation and several Canton Non-Profits. Please select The Children’s Haven as your charity at checkout! http://www.cantonduckrace.com

Our program, under the standards and mission of National CASA and Georgia CASA supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every abused or neglected child in our community can be safe, have a permanent home and have the opportunity to thrive.
