Congratulations as well to the runners up:
Michael Judge and Kara Martin Snyder

Kara Martin Snyder received the 2014 Mission Award.
This award acknowledges a candidate who has demonstrated exceptional outreach and advocacy throughout their campaign. Candidates were nominated by their peers, their campaign managers and the leadership team. Both the leadership team and candidates then reviewed each nomination and voted for the person who exemplified the mission. 

Thank you to all of the 2014 Candidates for supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society mission and being heroes in the fight against blood cancer!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a national ten-week campaign to raise funds to help find cures for blood cancers. The campaign includes individuals in the community who agree to utilize their leadership abilities and resources to conduct their own fundraising campaigns to help The Leukemia & lymphoma Society fund blood cancer research and provide education and support services for patients and their families.

The male and female candidates who raise the most funds during the campaign will be awarded the title of the chapter's Man & Woman of the Year. Candidates are judged solely on their success in raising money, each dollar counting as one vote. Their totals are then considered for the national title. Candidates run in honor of the Boy & Girl of the Year, who are local blood cancer patient survivors and sources of inspiration to others.

We are now accepting candidate nominations for our 2015 campaign! If you or someone you know are interested in running for next year's Man and Woman of the Year title, please contact Louise Popp at 508-810-1302 or Louise.Popp@lls.org.


Thank you for supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society mission!
