Since its inception in 2006, Dragon Boat Upstate Festival has been a catalyst for individuals in the Upstate to work together and change the face of cancer here in our community.
Over the years, more than $3,000,000 have been raised by passionate community members, helping propel the Prisma Health Cancer Institute forward in the areas of advanced cancer research and patient survivor programs in the Upstate to include the Mobile Mammography Initiative, the Center for Cancer Prevention and Wellness program, the Institute for Translational Oncology Research, McCrary Blood & Marrow Transplant Unit and the Center for Integrative Oncology & Survivorship.
Funds raised through Dragon Boat in 2020 will provide much needed support for local prevention and early detection, advanced cancer research and patient programs, as well as life-changing patient and survivor programs.
It’s a race against cancer. Will you take to the water to help us raise funds for cancer research and survivorship programs right here at home? Join us Saturday, September 12, 2020 at Portman Shoals Marina at Lake Hartwell!
