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 all 2020 Midlands Man & Woman of the Year Candidates and Team Members!  Together, you raised nearly $250,000 for the LLS Mission!  Congrats to our 2020 Man and Woman of the Year, Blake Wood and Meg Huggins!

Plans are already underway for our 2021 campaign, which will be held from March 2nd to May 13th.  We are currently accepting nominations for 2021 candidates.  For more information, or to nominate a candidate, please contact Amanda DuPre, Campaign Development Manager, at: Amanda.DuPre@lls.org
