Man & Woman of the Year

A fierce fundraising competition for ambitious community leaders

Are you driven to help your community thrive?

Do you have the power to influence others to get involved for the greater good?

Are you a leader of change? Standing up for what you believe in? 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) is an intense 10 week philanthropic competition amongst top leaders in local communities across Canada.

In its third year in Canada, first year in Toronto, kicking off on March 25, local leaders will go head to head in Toronto, Montreal and Halifax, competing for the local title of Man or Women of the Year. 

The Man and Woman who raise the most funds across all cities will be titled the National Man and Woman of the Year and will be recognized and celebrated across the country for their incredible contribution towards the blood cancer community!
