Fundraising

  • Paddlers competing in the Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation Dragon Boat Race & Festival are asked to raise donations in support of our community hospital. Each paddler can help achieve this goal by asking friends and family for small (or large) donations, which can add up quickly. This money is vital to help the hospital treat the more than 75,000 patients annually who need its services, regardless of their ability to pay.

    We encourage all teams to set their team goal of raising $2,500. There will be an award for the team that raises the most money. Each paddler raising $100 in donations or $2,500 per team will receive an event t-shirt.

    Once your team has registered, you will be able to create a fundraising page. Each team can create a page and each team member is encouraged to join in. It’s easy and only takes about 10 minutes. Just click here and you will be taken to the FirstGiving Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation Dragon Boat Race and Festival event page. Click the Join button and get started. FirstGiving offers tools and expertise to connect with friends and family and make fundraising simple and fun.
