Prisma Health Dragon Boat Upstate Festival
presented by Internetwork Engineering
Since its inception in 2006, our Dragon Boat Upstate Festival has been a catalyst for individuals in the Upstate to work together and change the face of cancer in our community. Over the years, more than $4,000,000 have been raised by caring community members, helping propel the Prisma Health Cancer Institute forward in the areas of advanced cancer research and patient survivor programs in the Upstate.
Funds raised through Dragon Boat in 2022 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.
Help us paddle fiercely against cancer by forming a team, joining a team or making a donation.
We are Paddling Fiercely Against Cancer
Why We Paddle
Every Dragon Boat paddler participates in the festival for different reasons, but we are all paddling fiercely against cancer. Unfortunately, we have all been touched by cancer, and Dragon Boat Upstate Festivals offers an opportunity for us to honor or memorialize a loved one in a unique and special way. Learn more about how the funds raised for Dragon Boat make a difference in the lives of many cancer patients and their families each day.
