A Sailing Fundraiser

Gary Jobson, National Chairman

Since 1993, participants in The Leukemia Cup Regatta events throughout the country have raised over $54 million in funding for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to invest in research to find cures for blood cancers - leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma - and to help improve the lives of patients and families. ESPN commentator and 1976 America's Cup winner Gary Jobson, who is a lymphoma survivor, has chaired The Leukemia Cup campaign since its inception. 

The Leukemia Cup is a fundraising Regatta and is for everyone that wants to help find a cure for blood cancers. We would love to have you on our team! 
Phantom Sailors qualify for all the same great benefits as their on-the-water counterparts.

When you fundraise for the Leukemia Cup Regatta, you're participating in the most important race of all...the race to find cures for blood cancers! 

Sailors of all levels, including those interested in our new cruising class and those new to the sport of sailing, can participate in the Leukemia Cup. Our Honorary Skippersand local blood cancer survivors will inspire you and remind you of the LLS mission as you join forces to raise vital funds to support our quest for a cure.  Contact Brandy Kovarsky at 813-261-3166 or today to start fundraising in support of our Honorary Skippers and qualify for exciting incentive prizes!
