The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents
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.
The man and woman who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community. The man and woman who have raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the national Man & Woman of the year.
Congratulations to the 2017 Man & Woman of the Year candidates and winners. Now we are looking forward to the 2018 campaign. We are excited for the Campaign starting March 8th and celebrating the success at the Grand Finale on May 18th.
