About this event

When you or someone you love hears the words “you have cancer”… It’s one of the darkest moments in your life. At Vancouver’s first Leukemia Cup, we will raise more than sails. We’ll lift hopes in times of despair, create community in place of loneliness and fund life-saving RESEARCH & SUPPORT for cancer patients and their families.

With COVID-19 continuing to place restrictions on outdoor activities, and the decision by the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, to cancel sailing events, the Leukemia Cup Regatta will not take place on its originally-scheduled date of May 31, 2020.   The volunteers involved with organizing the Leukemia Cup are exploring alternate race dates and we will provide an update for the event, along with a new date for the event soon.  Please continue your fundraising efforts because with the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has on cancer patients, your help is needed now more than ever.  

In the months leading up to Vancouver’s Leukemia Cup, individuals will form fundraising teams that help galvanize relationships between friends, family and business contacts. These fundraising efforts will culminate with a celebratory multi-class race on May 30th. The race events will be followed by an evening gala where we will share stories of hope, resilience and celebration. We will also have a silent auction and give away prizes, including the coveted Leukemia Cup, which will be awarded to the team that raises the most.

In 2018 the LLSC invested $7.8 million into research and patient services in Canada. This means that this year in British Columbia, we are currently funding six researchers and will support over 500 hundred families with support services. Your support for initiatives like the Leukemia Cup Regatta makes this positive impact in our community possible!  Click here for more information and to register.
