One of AYC’s great traditions is our annual Birthday Regatta and Leukemia Cup. AYC’s “First in the Nation” Leukemia Cup Regatta (LCR) raises funds to fight the number one cancer in children, during our biggest event of the year, the AYC Birthday Regatta.
Our 2022 Birthday Regatta will be held February 18-20, 2022. And anyone can participate in the Leukemia Cup; no sailing required. Better yet, double your fun by taking part in both events.
Arizona Yacht Club is one of 45 US yacht clubs hosting Leukemia Cup events. AYC members have raised over $725,000 to fund the groundbreaking work of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).
LLS is the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancer, which accounts for 10% of all new cancer cases in the US and is the 3rd leading cause of cancer deaths. LLS has played a direct role in over 85% of blood cancer treatments and therapies approved by the FDA in the past few years, dramatically improving patient outcomes.
Show your AYC and Arizona community spirit. Join AYC members to support this great cause by becoming a Leukemia Cup fundraiser.
On Saturday night of the Birthday Regatta our top Leukemia Cup individual, team and fleet fundraisers will be recognized. But the campaign doesn’t end with the Birthday Regatta. Fund raising continues throughout the year with opportunities to win prizes and RAISE MORE THAN A SAIL!
