CloudSixteen is proud to have helped sponsor Team Trace in The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year fundraising competition for the Austin area. Trace Hight was awarded runner-up in the annual competition after raising more than $45,000 for the organization’s leukemia and other blood cancer treatment research.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year competitions are carried out in communities across the country every year in order to help raise funds for awareness of and research for blood cancer. Every dollar a candidate raises counts as one vote, and at the end of a ten week period, whoever has the most votes in their community earns the title of Man or Woman of the Year.
At CloudSixteen, we are always happy to be able to give back to our community however we can, and we extend our congratulations to Trace and his team for their success in this year’s fundraising event.
