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 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.

21 dedicated candidates collectively raised a record-breaking $3.3 million for the LLS mission in just 10 weeks! Thank you to all the 2022 candidates, campaign teams, donors, and supporters! View the 2022 Grand Finale Gala Program Book HERE.
