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 are recognized
as the National Man & Woman of the Year.
