UPDATED – A Message From The Leukemia/Lymphoma Society –
Dear Arizona Yacht Club Members,
We are thankful all year for our wonderful friends, but this season of caring reminds us of how fortunate we are to have such generous people around us. The work you are doing through the Leukemia Cup Regatta has resulted in there being three researchers funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I just wanted to convey once again the impact you have on blood cancer cures. You are very generous with your time, and it helps tremendously.
On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you for joining us for our 2011 Leukemia Cup Regatta with gold medalist speaker Maureen McKinnon-Tucker. Dojiggy fundraising pages are ready to be reactivated! Please just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. By agreeing to participate in our 12th Annual Leukemia Cup Regatta, you have joined thousands of fundraising sailors nationwide to help support the Society’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
As you know, this is a fundraising regatta, and you and your crewmates are encouraged to raise as much money as possible. Every dollar helps support blood cancer research and the Society’s education and support programs. You can also earn great fundraising prizes and the chance to win a trip to our annual Fantasy Sail Weekend next Fall in New York.
Since its inception in 1949, the Society has invested more thank $483 million in research, leading to breakthrough drugs like Gleevec® designed to fight chronic myelogenous leukemia. Currently, the Society underwrites the work of over 400 cancer researchers throughout the world, and provides a wide range of patients services including financial aid, support groups and educational seminars. None of this could happen without the support of fundraisers like you.
Thank you for joining our “crew”, as we race for a cure. We appreciate your efforts on the Leukemia Cup Regatta, and wish you and your family a joyous holiday season.
