About this event

LLS and the NYYC are working hard to safely and responsibly assess any and all events coming up in 2020. Currently, all LLS events through the end of May are postponed, so keep an eye out for virtual events and webinars coming soon. Keeping our volunteers, supporters, and patients healthy is our #1 priority, and we will update our information with news about postponement or shifts in event plans for June as soon as we have them.
In the meantime, our high-risk patients and their families need us now more than ever, and you can check out our COVID resources HERE. In these times of uncertainty, blood cancer patients and their families need our help more than ever and LLS will amplify our efforts to provide free information and support, as well as advocate for policies that will protect them.
Funds raised by our sailors will provide resources and services and will motivate us even more, sign up below to support these patients and stay in the know about the 26th Rhode Island Leukemia Cup Regatta!
