Our Honored Hero

 Chloe

In 2012, Chloe was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer. She has bravely undergone two years of treatments and has recently gotten her port removed. She is now celebrating remission!  Throughout the numerous chemo treatments, spinal taps and countless pokes and prods, Chloe remained a spunky and happy little girl.

Chloe is the daughter of Doug and Monika McEvoy.  She has had many ups and downs with her battle, but fortunately her future is looking bright.

  • In the 1960's, a child's chance of surviving leukemia was 3%; today, 90% can expect to survive into adulthood.
  • Since the 1960's, Hodgkin lymphoma patient survival rates have more than doubled to 88%
  • 40 years ago, 1 in 10 myeloma patients survived. Today, that number has more than tripled.

Bullets.  Brag Flags.  A Cure for Cancer.

Sign up today for the most fun--and most important--race of the summer. Captains and crew can work as a fundraising team or on their own. Don't race on a boat? Sign up as an individual participant and you're still eligible for our fantastic incentives.  Even if you are not sailing, you can still raise funds and qualify for the incentives.  Register now as a phantom sailor.

Event Info

Enjoy a little friendly competition on Lake St. Clair by participating in the Leukemia Cup Regatta.

Sailors will set sail for the Leukemia Cup Regatta on Sunday, August 20, 2017.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Leukemia Cup Regatta is a thrilling series of events that combines the joy of on-water sports 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 the Leukemia Cup Regatta.
