The Leukemia Cup Regatta is a series of events benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). When you participate in The Regatta, you raise valuable funds that are invested in research to find cures for blood cancers - leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma - and to help improve the lives of patients and families. Sailors and boaters like you have fundraised to help LLS invest nearly $1 billion in better cancer treatments.
