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.

Congratulations to our 2019 candidates and winners who raised over $590,000! It was a record-breaking year for the Nashville campaign. Abbie Hendry Hammett, 2019 Woman of the Year, has the new Nashville fundraising record with $158,866.94 and Jonathan Hutton came in a close second as our 2019 Man of the Year raising $153,165.31. It was an amazing year and we are so grateful to all the work our candidates and their teams put into the campaign.

2020 Nashville Man & Woman of the Year campaign plans are underway and we hope you will join us! We are currently accepting nominations for 2020 candidates. For more information on our events, partnerships or to become a candidate email christina.ryan@lls.org.
