About this event

Thank you for your interest in The 25th Rhode Island Leukemia Cup, benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Your support is the key to helping LLS achieve its mission of creating a world without blood cancers. You can get involved and support our cause in a variety of ways:

  1. Register to sail and raise funds - Sign up as a skipper or crew member to raise more than a sail!
    • All registered sailors will be given a website to help them raise funds to support the LLS mission of supporting patients and families through the advancement of research and therapies, advocating for access, as well as programs for patients and caregivers
  • Sign up today and if your boat raises $1,000 before May 8th, and your registration fees will be waived! 
  • Don't have a boat? No problem! We have a fleet of J 22s to sail!
    • Sign up and raise $1,000 total with your crew by May 8th, and you can reserve one to sail on race day!
