Since 1988, participants have been sailing, powerboating, and paddling in communities throughout the country in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Leukemia Cup Regatta fundraising teams have raised over $73 million dollars to fund the LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Join LLS and bring the Leukemia Cup to your community while making an impact where it’s needed most.
LLS is at the forefront of the fight against cancer. Learn more about our mission.
All Leukemia Cup events benefitting LLS are volunteer-led DIY run events. The following tools can help you host a future DIY Leukemia Cup event.

My sister, Jan, was diagnosed with a very aggressive leukemia in April 2007. She is leading a very active life today as a result of research paid for by people donating to fundraisers like our Leukemia Cup Regatta. Someday this disease will not exist.
I just want to thank you again for a wonderful event and for providing such a marvelous environment to rejuvenate our fundraising efforts. The hospitality, camaraderie...AND SAILING TOO...were all fabulous! Arrrrr! And Thank you!
