Maryland Leukemia Cup

Saturday, 4 June 2022 marks the date for the Maryland Leukemia Cup Regatta, a CBYRA-sanctioned event held by Eastport Yacht Club (EYC), Annapolis Yacht Club, Herrington Harbour Sailing Association, Maryland Yacht Club, and Rock Creek Racing Association. Racing sailors can expect top race management on the racecourse and a Rock the Docks for a Cure Party onshore at EYC.

This year, the regatta will benefit the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC). The long-time beneficiary of the regatta, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, has pivoted its fundraising focus in a new direction. For 2022, regatta organizers decided to redirect the Chesapeake sailing community’s strong support for blood cancers research to a local institution and chose UMGCCC, where Gary Jobson and many other Marylanders have been successfully treated for lymphoma.

UMGCCC was the first cancer center qualified in the tri-state region of Maryland/Delaware/Virginia area to offer CAR-T cell therapy for aggressive B cell lymphomas. As the busiest and most experienced cellular immunotherapy center in the region, it now offers CAR-T therapy for several types of B cell lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma. UMGCCC also has the most advanced cell therapy research and production laboratory in the region which is developing the next generation of cellular therapies for blood cancers.

The University of Maryland Medical Center is currently conducting a capital campaign to construct the Roslyn and Leonard Stoler Center for Advanced Medicine, the new home of UMGCCC. The campaign is also securing funding to advance UMGCCC’s clinical care, patient support services, research, training, and education programs. The new Stoler Center includes an entire floor dedicated to the Transplant and Cellular Therapy (TCT) Unit/Center and the campaign has secured significant funding to advance the research behind this treatment.
