The isolation we're all feeling now is often what our youth feel when they don’t have a mentor or positive role model in their lives. Please help support mentoring for at-risk youth in our community by joining the Virtual 2020 Duck N Run 5k!

We are prioritizing the health and safety of our runners, walkers, sponsors, volunteers, and staff and are responding to guidance from health and governmental officials and are switching our Duck Derby and Duck N Run 5k to a virtual event. We encourage you to walk or run wherever you are, anytime between now and August 6th. This is a chance to show our strength in a challenging time, and a chance to get outside and be active with our virtual community across Shelby & Darke County. The Duck Derby drawing will take place on August 6th at 7:30 pm via Facebook Live on the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County Facebook page and will be recorded and shared on our other social media platforms and webpage at This is a chance to prove that not only will we conquer the Coronavirus, but we will conquer the isolation that at-risk youth experience in our community.
