The Race with a Mission!

The Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) 16th Annual Dragon Boat Festival is a fun, family-friendly event in which dedicated participants, volunteers, and sponsors raise money to support homeless men, women, and children in our community. As the largest dragon boat event in East Tennessee, it's an amazing experience to be part of.

The Dragon Boat Festival is a fantastic opportunity for your company, church, friends and family to come together and raise important funds to support the Knox area community while building camaraderie. Each registrant will receive their own fundraising page to personalize, where their supporters can make contributions toward the paddler's team's goal.

KARM is devoted to helping restore lives in Jesus' name through combining emergency rescue with positive, encouraging relationships. KARM provides food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and healing for hurting people in our community. KARM is home to nearly 400 people each night and serves nearly 1,000 meals daily, caring for those in need as a Christian ministry since 1960.
