The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Presents

Man & Woman of the Year

Man & Woman of the Year is a 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 Boy and Girl of the Year. 

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

Congratulations to all 2021 Man & Woman of the Year candidates and team members. We are currently accepting nominations for 2022 candidates. For additional information, please contact Hayden Bevelacqua, Campaign Development Manager.
