The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents
VISIONARIES OF THE YEAR
Visionaries of the Year is a philanthropic competition for leaders in local communities across the United States. Candidates and their team members raise funds for LLS in honor of local blood cancer survivors, our Honored Heroes. The title "Visionary of the Year" is awarded to the candidate whose team raises the most funds within their local community. The top Visionaries of the Year candidate in the country is awarded with the national title. As part of their journey, candidates and their teams will also choose a pillar of LLS’s mission – Research, Patient Education & Support, or Advocacy - to champion on as they raise money.
Congratulations to this year’s candidate class. We are currently accepting nominations for next year. For additional information please contact your local LLS Staff Partner.
