May 29-30, 2015
Welcome to the Annapolis Leukemia Cup Regatta (LCR) homepage. 2015 marked the 23rd Anniversary of this important event that took place on May 29th and 30th. We are pleased to announce that it was a record breaking year, with 103 boats in the Regatta and $247,000 raised for the mission of LLS. The "Off the Water Fundraising Race" encouraged fleets, clubs and individual teams to join in the fight against blood cancer, raising $120,000!
The Regatta event weekend was kicked off by our fabulous Summer & Gala Auction hosted by Annapolis Yacht Club on Friday May 29. Over 300 people gathered on the water to enjoy delicious food and drinks, a fabulous live and silent auction, live entertainment and a great program celebrating survivorship and honoring those affected by blood cancers. For the 4th year in a row this was a sell out event, and $70,000 was raised for blood cancer cures.
On Saturday, May 30th, the day kicked off with the Leukemia Cup Regatta with 13 fleets and 103 boats on the water. Perfect weather and wind lead to some great racing.

Taking place during the Regatta, the local J/80 fleet put on the 6th Annual J80 Luncheon and Fun Race, hosted by Eastport Yacht Club and Sponsored by Chic-Fil-A. Local families affected by blood cancers enjoyed a stress free day on the water in the Fun Race.

What is the Leukemia Cup Regatta??
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Leukemia Cup Regatta is a thrilling series of events that combines the joy of boating 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. It all started right here in Annapolis and now is held 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.
Cures today. Not someday. That's the goal. We are on the threshold of amazing breakthroughs. Your money accelerates miraculous new treatments and healing therapies once thought impossible. And with our co-pay and insurance assistance, many patients can now afford the medication they need. And you are at the heart of it. Thank you for making a difference.
