The Brainerd Jaycees started Big Bill$ Lil' Rubber Duckie Race in 2011 as a means to support area youth athletics in the Brainerd lakes area. The Jaycees partnered with Lakes Area Youth Soccer Association (LAYSA) and other youth sports organizations to help sell the duckies. The Jaycees have donated over $75,000 dollars to LAYSA (Lakes Area Youth Soccer Association), Brainerd BMX Club, Brainerd Wrestling Club, Brainerd Public Schools Foundation, youth baseball teams and other youth athletic groups over the years.

The Brainerd Jaycees is a volunteer organization for young men and women ages 18-41. The Brainerd Jaycees are also well known for the $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza, Run for the Lakes Marathon, and Street Fest on 7th. Visitwww.brainerdjaycees.com for more information on the Brainerd Jaycees.
