    Overview

    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 raise the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community.  

     

    Students of the Year- Students of the Year is an exciting leadership development and philanthropy program in which high school students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit LLS.  Every dollar raised counts as one vote.  The candidates/teams who raise the most money at the end of the 7-week competition earn the title Student(s) of the Year. For motivated high school students, this program ensures they stand out among their peers when engaging with colleges and/or future employers. Through guidance and mentoring from experienced professionals at LLS they will make a real impact in the fight against blood cancers.
