2017 MWOY Campaign

Everyone wins when cancer loses.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a fundraising competition among a select group of individuals in the community. Candidates for Man & Woman of the Year are extraordinary people. They share a competitive spirit and compassion for others. They are dynamic individuals who are well-connected in their communities, and they are relentless in their efforts to find cures for blood cancers. From corporate presidents to ultra marathoners, the diverse individuals all have one goal in mind: a world without blood cancer. While each candidate conducts their own campaign, they are all united by one goal: to use their leadership skills to raise funds to help blood cancer patients live longer, more fulfilling lives. By accepting the nomination, candidates will have ten weeks beginning the day of the kickoff to accumulate the most "votes." Every dollar raised counts as one vote. The male and female candidates who raise the most votes during the campaign are named the Triangle Man & Woman of the Year at the Grand Finale on May 20, 2017.
 

WHAT
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a fundraising competition among a select group of individuals in the community.  While each candidate conducts their own campaign, all candidates are united by one goal: to use their leadership skills to raise funds to help blood cancer patients live longer and more fulfilling lives.

HOW
By accepting the nomination, candidates will have 10 weeks beginning the day of the kickoff to accumulate the most "votes" and every dollar raised counts as one vote.  The male and female candidates who raise the most votes during the campaign are named the Man & Woman of the Year at the Grand Finale Gala.

WHO
Candidates run in honor of the Boy & Girl of the Year, who are local blood cancer survivors and sources of inspiration.  Candidates are people who are passionate about finding cures for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.  From corporate presidents to ultra marathoners, the diverse candidates and nominees always have two qualities in common: humanity and passion.

WHY
More than 1 million people in the United States are living with, or are in remission from a blood cancer.  Someone new is diagnosed with a blood cancer every four minutes.  New cases of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma will account for nine percent of the 1.5 million new cancer diagnoses in the United States this year.

We rely on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations.  Proceeds from the 2017 Man & Woman of the Year campaign support our mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
