Leukemia Cup Regatta

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Leukemia Cup RegattaSM is a thrilling series of sailing events that combines the joy of sailing with the important task of raising money to cure cancer. Since its inception, The Leukemia Cup Regatta has raised millions of dollars for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families.

At events held at yacht clubs across North America, skippers register their boats and recruit friends and colleagues to help crew and to raise funds. Crew members seek donations from friends, family, co-workers and employers to sponsor their boat. National and local event sponsors also support Regatta.

Funds raised through The Leukemia Cup Regatta advance LLS’s mission: cure leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS carries out its mission by funding leading-edge cancer research; providing information and support services for patients, and education for health care professionals; and advocating for patients at national and state levels.
