The funds raised will help support life-saving research and patient services, bringing hope to blood cancer patients and their families. Since the Leukemia Cup Regatta’s inception, more than $62 million has been raised to help advance the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
“West Marine is honored to partner with LLS’s Leukemia Cup Regatta and help accelerate cures,” said Deb Radcliff, West Marine Senior Vice President, Marketing. “The connection that many of our customers and associates have to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s cause was inspirational for both our associates’ and customers’ families. In the two years we’ve conducted the paper sailboat campaign, we are proud to have raised nearly $85,000 for LLS.”
