About this event

The Leukemia Cup presented by Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was held on July 14th & 15th, 2018 at the Ocean City Yacht Club and the Yacht Club at Stone Harbor. With 40 sailboats and 15 power boats at the Poker Run, over $140,000 were raised to help find a cure to end blood cancers.  Thank you to all of our donors, sponsors, participants, and volunteers.  Your participation and support is the key to helping LLS achieve its mission of creating a world without blood cancers.  

While the sailing and social events are now memories, the fight against blood cancers goes on.  You can continue to support our efforts by making a donation to a participant, a team, or this event. 

 


The only regatta of its kind in the State of New Jersey, the exhilarating sailing events and off-water parties raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. These premier events are for boaters, non-boaters, and water enthusiasts of all ages. Captains, crew and non-sailors alike are encouraged to raise funds to help find better treatments and cures for leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers.    

Please join us for these Leukemia Cup Regatta of New Jersey events in 2018!
