Families Lead the Charge to Support Cancer Research Through Clinical Trials

Arnie’s Army showed up in full force Tuesday afternoon to support one of the many causes important to Arnold Palmer.

While the 120 players in the field were honing their games preparing for Thursday’s opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard, nearly 1,500 people showed at the ninth fairway on the Championship Course at Bay Hill Club & Lodge to participate in the fourth annual Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer.

The event, one the early-week highlights of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard, continues to draw larger crowds each year. Included among the participants were players who are competing in this week’s 38th edition of Palmer’s prestigious invitational tournament.

Among the golfers on hand for Arnie’s March were PGA TOUR veteran Dicky Pride and amateur sensation Maverick McNealy, the NCAA Division I Player of the Year, along with Portugese Golfer Ricardo Gouveia. Also lending their support were Luke Boden and Lewis Neal representing the Orlando City Soccer Club of the MLS.

All funds from Arnie’s March directly benefit cancer research, treatment and clinical trials at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. Over the last four years Arnie March has raised nearly $500,000. To learn more visit ArniesMarch.com
