Matt ClarkMatt Clark, '10 MBA, was recently named the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Minnesota Chapter's 2013 Man of the Year for raising more than $43,000 for blood cancer research. Each year, LLS honors a man and a woman who raise the most funds during a 10-week campaign period. Awards are presented both locally and nationally.

"The Minnesota Man and Woman of the Year campaign featured 10 incredible candidates who collectively raised $192,000," he said. "I was humbled and honored to be awarded the 2013 'Man of the Year' title for this LLS chapter."

Clark, a client manager at U.S. Bank, was one of six nominees for Man of the Year. "I wanted to take Mark's story and the stories of others battling this disease and raise as much money as we could," said Clark of his campaign. The money Clark raised will fund more than 43 weeks of blood cancer research.
