The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents
2022 Houston 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.
Our Houston campaign began in 2010 and we are so excited to continue our growth in 2022! In 2021, the Houston campaign was comprised of 12 man and woman candidates, and more than 160 team members! The class of 2021 raised over $1,300,000! Nick Conway of Parata Systems took home the Man of the Year title, while Cassie Croft of AmCap Home Loans took home Woman of the Year! BJ Patel of Arthur Lawrence was Man of the Year Runner-Up, and Keri DesAutels of Orangetheory Fitness came in Woman of the Year Runner-Up.
