About this event

Save The New Date

"We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sail."

While keeping the safety of our sailors, volunteers, and patients at the forefront, The Rhode Island Leukemia Cup Race Committee proudly presents our new date and race format for 2020. This year's Regatta will take place as a Pursuit Race around Prudence Island in Narragansett Bay on Saturday, August 22, 2020! More details to follow.*

We are thrilled to look forward to a socially-distanced race on the water to raise vitally needed funds to support research, programs, and services for patients and their families. Now more than ever, these families need our support with the added hurdle of a global pandemic. Join us and raise more than just a sail!

*More announcements will follow with timing, starting point, and details regarding the Virtual Post-Race Celebration. Check here as well as our Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and e-mails to those on the Leukemia Cup Regatta contact list.

      • All registered sailors receive a peer-to-peer fundraising website to support patients and families through the advancement of research and therapies, advocating for access, as well as programs for patients and caregivers
      • Registration fee is refunded if your crew raises $1,000 collectively!
    • Not around that weekend? Sign up as a Phantom Sailor and support the cause!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!

In the meantime, if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with blood cancer, LLS has doubled down in its efforts to support patients in need. Not only is LLS continuing to fund lifesaving research as well as virtual and tele-programs and services, but now thanks to the support of some of our partners, we will now be offering COVID-19 Financial Aid to patients affected by the crisis.
