Peppercom’s Steve Cody Taking Part in Cancer Society Competition

Peppercom co-founder Steve Cody is busy raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and trying to earn the title of 2012 Man of the Year in the process.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society funds research into blood cancer drugs, advocates for public policy to advance the treatment and eradication of blood cancers, and helps with patient services. The Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a 10-week competition between a group of candidates, each vying to raise the most money (minimum, $20,000). Participants craft a campaign with the nonprofit’s staff and attend various events throughout the course of the competition.

Cody most recently hosted a stand-up comedy show in New York, has hosted a wine tasting event, and continues to collect donations at this URL. The competition runs through May 17. You can check out a complete list of competitors here.
