National Hospice Regatta Alliance
Tim Sladden and his team from Rochester, NY, began the final day of racing at Hospice Regattas Championship 2014 in first place overall. By finishing first twice - and no worse than fourth in any race - on Sunday, they took the Championship trophies and yellow flag home to the shores of Lake Ontario.
The Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta is its primary fundraising event for Senator Bob Hooper House, supporting its services for terminal patients and their loved ones in Harford County, MD, near Baltimore.
Each year, hospice regattas generate more than $1 million net proceeds for local hospices, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of sailors and individual and business sponsors.
"Inspired by competition, Enhanced with compassion"
Our mission is to support charity sailing regattas that raise funds for and awareness of non-profit hospice services in local communities.
