The two winners, Joshua Schoppe of Philadelphia, and Mary Cushing Doherty of North Wales, raised $82,358 and $120,746 respectively, to support LLS’s goal to find cures for blood cancers and ensure that patients have access to lifesaving treatments. During a spirited 10-week fundraising period beginning with a kickoff celebration, candidates across the country competed in honor of a local boy or girl who is a blood cancer survivor to raise the most funds to ensure a world without blood cancers. Candidates and their campaign teams were judged solely on fundraising success, each dollar counting as one vote. Their totals are then considered for the national title. Candidates in each LLS chapter across the country vie for the local title, and the highest fundraisers earn the title of National Man & Woman of the Year. The national titles will be awarded to the top fundraisers in the country, to be announced this summer.
