Thank you to all who joined us at Portman Marina on May 4 to celebrate the 18th Annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival!

With full hearts and Dragon Boats, we raised $310,000 to support local cancer initiatives, research and patient survivorship programs.

While the race may be over, our commitment to making a difference continues. Your ongoing support sustains our efforts and fuels our journey towards a brighter future. Whether it's today, tomorrow or December, your donation makes a meaningful impact all year round.

We deeply appreciate your support in the fight against cancer. Your compassion and generosity are the foundation of our mission. Together, we are creating ripples of change and a tidal wave of hope extending far beyond the shores of our dragon boat races.
