Illinois Man & Woman of the Year

We are thrilled to be bringing back this exciting, mission-driven campaign back to Chicago in 2017. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a spirited campaign which brings together community leaders to compete to raise as much money as possible in 10 weeks. This competition is about candidate finding innovative ways to raise money for the mission of LLS. By creating teams of friends, family and corporate associates, candidates will increase their fundraising potential, thereby increasing the chances of winning the title of Man or Woman of the Year.

Campaign begins on March 30 and concludes June 10.
