Man & Woman of the Year

Man & Woman of the Year is philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States.  Candidates form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honor of two local children who are blood cancer survivors. This year, we are proud to announce the addition of our Student of the Year campaign, where high school students compete against each other, with the top fundraiser winning the title of Student of the Year, along with the opportunity to earn college scholarship money! 

The man and woman and student who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman or Student  of the Year in their community.  The man and woman and student who have raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the national Man & Woman and Student of the year.
