Paddles Up! Every dollar raised supports UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health.

The 9th Annual Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival presented by PepsiCo takes place on Saturday, October 15th. The Festival benefits Orlando Health Foundation and gives paddlers, and their friends and family members, the opportunity to fundraise for the hospital system.

The Orlando Health Foundation is committed to raising much-needed funds for cancer patients in our local area. Show your support by creating or joining a fundraising team. Funds will directly benefit the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health.

The UF Health Cancer Center at  Orlando Health is the only cancer center in Central Florida to be recognized by the State of Florida as a Cancer Center of Excellence. To gain this distinction, we had to demonstrate that we are a leader in comprehensive cancer treatment, research, care and education. 

Please use the buttons on the right to register to fundraise. (This is separate from race registration, which must be done through Great White North)

Invite a friend or fellow team member to register with you! We need everyone’s support at this event to raise awareness and help us find a cure for cancer.

Every dollar you raise makes a positive impact and could help save a life!

Thank you for your help and support. Paddles Up!
