Why Participate

Why Participate

An estimated 1,345,123 Americans currently battle blood cancers. Every three minutes, someone is diagnosed.

They are men, women, children, of every race and every age. Every nine minutes, someone dies from these cancers. Participation in the Leukemia Cup Regatta helps save lives!

Funds raised through the Leukemia Cup Regatta advance LLS's mission: cure leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS carries out its mission by funding leading-edge cancer research; providing information and support services for patients, and education for health care professionals; and advocating for patients at national and state levels.

Fundraising is made easy; just ask us how. The Leukemia Cup Regatta staff will provide fundraising support. Sailors receive a comprehensive fundraising guide filled with incentives, fundraising ideas, sample letters and event ideas!
