The 14th Annual Harbor Hospice Regatta race raising funds and awareness for the Harbor Hospice Foundation will be held Wednesday evening, August 11, 2021.
Registrations, Judy Miller Memorial Challenge, and In Memory Burgees (due July 6) can be done at: https://harborhospicemi.org/ways-to-give/regatta/. The event is open for current and potential Muskegon Yacht Club members, sailors, and their families.

This year, proceeds will help cover extraordinary increases of Personal Protection Equipment related to the pandemic. Your support enables us to continue to provide patients and families with safe exceptional care – anytime, anywhere.
Since this exciting competition was created 13 years ago, more than $400,000 has been raised, helping fund everything from Camp Courage to the purchase of comfy sofa-sleepers in patient rooms at the Leila & Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence. Those funds also help assure that we can provide care to anyone who needs it regardless of their ability to pay. In 2020 the event raised over $16,000 to help offset the cost of supplies necessary to keep our patients, staff, and volunteers connected and protected in the face of COVID-19.
This hugely popular race is part of the National Hospice Regatta Alliance (hospiceregattas.org) which has raised more than $25 million dollars for hospice services across the country.
Who will win the race and memorial challenge this year?
