Sailing to Raise Funds and Create a
World Without Blood Cancers
American Yacht Club (AYC) Fall Series
& Post-Race Party
Saturday, September 24, 2022
The AYC Leukemia Cup Regatta is seeking sailors, sponsors and party attendees for its 2022 Leukemia Cup Regatta to be held on September 24, 2022 to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Leukemia Cup Regattas (LCR) combine the joy of sailing with raising funds for blood cancer research. Skippers register their boats and recruit friends, family, and colleagues to help crew and raise funds to benefit our mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Please join us in supporting LLS by registering for the AYC Fall Series, raising funds as a member of the AYC LCR event (you do not need to compete in the regatta to fundraise), sponsoring the event and/or attending the post-race party at AYC. Thanks to your support, our efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.
To join us in fundraising, please select "Join A Team" on the right side of the screen to register and when prompted for the team name, enter American Yacht Club.

LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please share this event and bring friends who would also like to donate!
