Adam Neary named National Man of the Year by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

July 12, 2022

We are thrilled to share the news that Adam Neary, Principal of WealthOne has been named National Man of the Year by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on July 12, 2022, for being the top fundraiser, raising $1,095,692 during this 10-week fundraising campaign to fight blood cancer, a disease diagnosed every 180 seconds in the US for which there is no current means of prevention. Adam took part in this competition in honor of Todd Slingerland, Managing Member of WealthOne who battled an aggressive form of lymphoma in spring 2021 and is now in remission. “Todd is a survivor today because of the investment, research, and support for which LLS tirelessly champions, “said Neary. “Just because Todd’s cancer is dormant, doesn’t mean we can be – the fight continues, and it will continue until we find a cure.” Adam Neary led a team of 16 community professionals, Team CureOne, who held events and sought donations from their networks.

  • Over 800 Man/Woman of the Year candidates were raising funds for LLS across the country, from 80 “markets”, including large cities with over 11,000 team members
  • Team CureOne, led by Adam Neary, consisted of 16 members and raised the most money nationally – including through the Party of the Century and Golf for a Cure events organized by Adam.
  • This is the first time an upstate/Hudson Valley candidate ever raised over $1 million (nearly tripling the next highest total ever)
  • Adam secured the largest cryptocurrency donation in LLS history

Please join us in congratulating Adam Neary on this significant achievement which will help with research, patient support, and education in the continued fight for a cure for blood cancers.
