Leukemia Cup

About the IYC Leukemia Cup Regatta  

The Leukemia Cup Regatta (LCR), hosted by the Isles Yacht Club (IYC) and supported by numerous businesses and individuals, is a month-long collection of recreational events in Charlotte County. The proceeds from these events benefit the important task of raising money to fight leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's, and myeloma. The cornerstone of these events is the Leukemia Cup Regatta, which is supported by the national office of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and is implemented by 33 local chapters of the LLS throughout the United States and Canada. This will be the 17th year that the Isles Yacht Club will be sponsoring the Leukemia Cup Regatta.
Why do we do this? To raise money to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Seventy-five to seventy-eight percent of the money raised goes towards research and patient services, which includes financial aid, support groups, and educational programs.
