2017 Illinois Leukemia Cup Regatta
Enjoy a little friendly competition on Lake Michigan by participating in the Leukemia Cup Regatta.
Thank you to everyone who supported, participated and invested in a cure for blood cancers through the 2017 Illinois Leukemia Cup Regatta! Collectively, the Illinois Leukemia Cup Series raised over $500,000 for the first time in campaign history!! We could not have done it without each and every donation.
Unfortunately, cancer doesn't stop - so neither will we! Donations to advance the cure of LLS and continue to fund breakthrough research will be accepted for the 2017 events through the end of the calendar year (December 31, 2017). You can still support by:

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Leukemia Cup Regatta is a thrilling series of events that combines the joy of on-water sports with the important task of raising money to cure cancer. Since its inception, the Leukemia Cup Regatta has raised millions for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families. Since the Illinois Leukemia Cup Regatta started in 1997, local sailors and supporters have raised over $3.8 million to support local patients and fund groundbreaking research grants here in Illinois.
At events held at yacht clubs across North America, skippers register their boats and recruit friends and colleagues to help crew and to raise funds. Crew members seek donations from friends, family, co-workers and employers to sponsor their boat. National and local event sponsors also support the Leukemia Cup Regatta. Join us today in support of the LLS mission and raise your sails to fight cancer!
