Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer

Join us in fighting childhood cancer

March With Us

Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard are joining forces to take a stand against children’s cancer – and we need your help!

Join us as we raise much-needed funds for children’s cancer research through clinical trials at The Haley Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Arnold Palmer Hospital by creating or joining a fundraising team. Then, show your support for our young patients and their families by walking with us at Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, where we will be joined by families, friends, and special guests from the world of professional golf!

Let’s march against childhood cancer together! Learn more. 

Arnie's March

How We Began Marching

Arnie's March began in 2012 by two moms Geri Goldstein and Karen Leonard who both had daughters battling cancer at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. With a desire to keep funds local and help ensure families in our community could receive the treatment and support they needed close to home when fighting cancer, these two moms helped kick off Arnie's March. In six years, the march has raised more than $900,000 for cancer research at Arnold Palmer Hospital.

Why We March


Because these kids need our help. Because the children treated at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children deserve the best care close to home. And through Arnie's March, you can help support the cancer research and clinical trial program at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and keep kids and their families together as they battle this awful disease.

By supporting Arnie’s March, you play a part in making sure children and families who are battling cancer can stay in Central Florida and receive treatment at Arnold Palmer Hospital. There are a variety of ways you can support these efforts including starting your own fundraising team, joining an existing team or by donating to an individual or team.  We will celebrate the fundraising efforts at our annual Arnie’s March celebration and reunion in March of 2020. This event takes place as part of the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard. If you have questions about the page setup, registration or have difficulties with the site, please email us at

  • The route for the March will be exactly one mile around several holes and the clubhouse at Bay Hill.
