About Arnie's March Against Children's Cancer


Arnie's March Against Children's Cancer is a fundraising walk held annually during the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard. This is a signature local event to help support pediatric cancer research and clinical trials at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, Florida.

Arnie's March provides us an opportunity to recognize and honor our cancer fighters, their families, hospital staff, and supporters. All our participants enjoy a fun event as well as opportunities to win prizes for fundraising, completing activities, inviting others, and spreading the word on social media. Join us as we raise much-needed funds for the Haley Center for Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders at Arnold Palmer Hospital by creating or joining a fundraising team, making a donation and registering to march.

WALK EVENT SCHEDULE on March 14th, 2017:

- Onsite registration and check-in: 3 p.m. (Follow signs to Lot 8 for parking.)

- Fun activities for the whole family, including food and beverages: 3:00-6:00 p.m.

- Program begins at 4:30 p.m.

- One Mile March begins at 5:00pm


THE MARCH ROUTE:

The route for the March will be exactly one mile around several holes and the clubhouse at Bay Hill. While most of the walking will be done on a concrete golf cart path, a portion of the route (approximately 1/10 of a mile) will require marchers to traverse grassy golf course conditions. Those who believe they are unable to walk this distance or walk on this terrain may remain in the staging area during the actual march.
