What is the Sail-a-thon for Ovarian Cancer Awareness?
For the sixth year, Sail-a-thon will be a part of the Harvest Moon Regatta® October 5-8th. Sail-a-thon is a fundraising event benefiting the Judy’s Mission Ovarian Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to ending ovarian cancer through funding research and raising awareness. Since Sail-a-thon’s inception in 2011, over $68,000 has been raised to further Judy’s Mission of ovarian cancer awareness and research funding.
How can I participate?
Visit the Sail-a-thon website HERE and participate in one of the following ways:
Skippers wishing to participate as a team can create a personal fundraising page and raise funds as a team
Individuals can make a donation toward a boat
If you are not participating in Harvest Moon Regatta, you can create a virtual boat and fundraise
The 2017 Sail-a-thon Awards
This year, Judy’s Mission will be presenting trophies to the first, second, and third skippers registered in the Harvest Moon Regatta who raise the most funds. A special trophy will be presented to the skipper who has the most individual donations, regardless of the total amount raised. It is just as important to spread awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms as it is to raise funds!
The winner of the first place trophy will also have his/her name and his/her boat/team name engraved on the Judy’s Mission Perpetual Trophy. This trophy was created in 2012 to honor Judy Robinson and is kept on display at Lakewood Yacht Club throughout the year.
