Arnie's March Atlanta provides an opportunity to recognize and to honor young cancer-fighters, their families, hospital staff and supporters. The fun event provides opportunities to win prizes for fundraising, completing activities, inviting others and spreading the word on social media. Before the march, participants can enjoy face painting, putt-putt, crafts and other activities, as well as snacks from Chick-fil-A.
To get involved, participants can create or join a fundraising team, make a donation or register to march. Funds raised will remain in the Atlanta area to support pediatric cancer care at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Nearly 16,000 children are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. each year. Arnie’s March is inspired by the late golfing legend Arnold Palmer, who challenged the community to always “do better” when it comes to pediatric healthcare. Arnie’s March, along with other events presented by the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation and its partners, gives fans a chance to continue the legacy of man who championed a #LifeWellPlayed, especially for children in need. September 10, 2019 would have been Palmer’s 90th Birthday.
