Nearly 1.012,533 Americans currently battle blood cancers. Every four minutes, someone is diagnosed. They are men, women, children, of every race and every age. Every ten minutes, someone dies from these cancers. Participation in The Leukemia Cup Regatta helps save lives!
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.
In addition to helping cancer patients live better, longer lives, your participation can also earn you rewards! Each sailor who fundraises is eligible to win great prizes from our national sponsors, including:
- Gift certificates from West Marine

In addition, Offshore Sailing School sailing training tuitions, Moorings yacht charters and limited edition Scott Kennedy marine artwork can be won by the highest bidder at many Leukemia Cup Regatta auctions.
