2015 Champions of Hope

Meet Our 2015 Champions of Hope

All the candidates for Man & Women of the Year are exceptional individuals. And some of them are so exceptional we've given them a special name: They are our Champions of Hope. These are candidates who went the distance and then some, raising, in ten weeks, $100,000 or more. They get a standing ovation from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and from more than one million patients battling blood cancers. Kudos to the Champions of Hope!
