Because the health and wellbeing of our community are of the utmost importance and our top priority, we will be postponing the Dragon Boat Upstate festival to Saturday, September 12, 2020. For our football fans, we recognize the new date is in the midst of college football season and plan to have televisions available so you won’t miss a play while fighting cancer and participating in a true tailgating experience.
We remain excited to host you later this year and will be updating the website with more information as we adapt to COVID-19.
Thank you to all for your continued support and understanding. As we have all witnessed in the last few days, great things happen when the community comes together, and we are confident the Dragon Boat Upstate Festival will remain and track along as it has in past years.
Your voice matters, and we care about your feedback and questions. Please reach out to Jim Kaltenbach at for any questions or comments.

14th annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival

DPR Cancer Rebellion

Our DPR team has once again accepted the challenge of raising money for the Dragon Boat Upstate Festival which benefits patients and families served by the Prisma Cancer Institute.

We raised over $46,000 in honor of one of our teammates who is winning her battle with cancer, but unfortunately, there are far too many other personal stories from this year that won't end as happily.

Your gift will ensure that we can continue to support cancer research and survivorship programs in the Upstate that will create more and more success stories to celebrate.

It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make your donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. Any amount, great or small, helps patients and families facing cancer in our community. We greatly appreciate your support!

Thank you so much,
Team DPR Cancer Rebellion
