Paddle Faster, I Hear Drummers: Dragon Boat 2016

orlando dragon boat festival

What activity requires a group of people working in unison and provides a full body workout? The Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival, of course. With over 70 teams that partake in this competitive paddle race, it’s the largest event of its kind in Florida. And for the third year in a row, the Appleton team paddled our hearts out. We enjoy it every time – perhaps it’s the shiny medal we get to take home for winning.

While Dragon Boat provides exercise and teambuilding activities, it also serves a greater purpose: supporting the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health.

Appleton is proud to be a three-year supporter of the Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival and it’s charitable partner, UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health. Through the years, we’ve created the event logo, an Orlando Health custom dragon boat wrap and a promo video. This year, we enjoyed the benefit of having the Professional Services Cup named after Appleton Creative, a benefit of finishing first place in our division at the 2015 festival.
