The Thunderbird Sailing Club and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society are teaming up for TSC’s First Leukemia Cup Regatta, on June 6 and 7, 2015. This event is a thrilling series of sailing events that combines the joy of boating with the important task of raising money to cure cancer. Since its inception, the Leukemia Cup Regatta has raised millions of dollars for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families.
Skippers register their boats, then recruit friends and colleagues to crew and raise funds. Crew members seek donations from friends, family, co-workers, employers, and businesses to sponsor their boat. National and local event sponsors also support the Leukemia Cup Regatta. The NOR, online registration, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) information and donation page are posted here under the Racing/Leukemia Cup tab. Net proceeds from regatta registration will be donated to the LLS.
Registered skippers will receive an email from LLS that will offer a fundraising page that will help in fundraising efforts. There will be instructions on how to use and customize your page to tell your own story if you choose, and helpful tips on your fundraising.
This is going to be a fun event that will raise money to fight cancer. We plan two days of racing with a cookout, silent auction and live entertainment on Saturday! So, get your crew together! Come on out and sail, dance, and party for the fight against cancer!
