The 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 U.S. will be recognized as the national Man & Woman of the year.
“I’m honored to be nominated” said Gary Wenner. “I lost my wife of 15 years to cancer, and I hope my story will inspire people to donate to my fundraising team”. “Cancer has affected so many us, including children. Through LLS, I’ve met 2 such children, and they have motivated me to embark on this campaign”.

Gary is dedicating his campaign to his wife, Kathleen Wenner, who lost her courageous 13 month battle with breast cancer in 2014. It’s also dedicated to the LLS Boy & Girl of the Year, Stanley & Molly. You can read their stories here http://www.mwoy.org/articles/meet-our-boy-girl-year
