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.

Due to the recent developments of COVID-19 the local 2020 MWOY campaign dates have changed! This year's National Capital MWOY campaign runs THURSDAY, MAY 7TH - SATURDAY, JULY 18TH, 2020. The kickoff celebration was held virtually on May 7 and will conclude with a virtual Grand Finale celebration on July 18, 2020. Feel free to reach out to Senior Manager, Allie Krafft at Alena.Krafft@lls.org for more information and or questions.
