Raise a Sail, Save a Life!
The Rhode Island Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is hosting the 2015 Leukemia Cup Regatta on June 5-6, 2015 at New York Yacht Club's Harbour Court in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island!
Not a sailor?... Not a problem! Register as a "Phantom Sailor" to help fund the fight against blood cancers. Every dollar raised is a dollar closer to cures. These funds support LLS's mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
The competition is hot on and off the water - see the top 10 individual and team fundraisers below. Plus, the sooner you get started, the sooner you will earn great incentives as well as a chance to join world-renowned sailor and ESPN commentator Gary Jobson, National Regatta Chairman, at the 2015 Fantasy Sail in Bermuda!
