Preston Clarke (2016 Man of the Year First Runner-Up) is the Managing Partner of Arizona Venture Consulting.  He has been involved with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (“LLS”) MWOY nominating committee since 2014.  Though he did not have a direct personal connection to LLS, he soon realized that many of his close friends did.  Hearing their stories motivated Preston to increase his commitment to LLS by running for Man of the Year in 2016 and raising over $149,000 with his team Coast to Coast Cures.  Preston’s campaign team, Coast to Coast Cures, was first formed in 2015 by Preston’s friend, Brint Morrow (2015 Man of the Year First Runner-Up).  They decided to build a legacy team off that foundation that can support future MWOY candidates.  Their goal is to raise $100,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society each year and total of $1,000,000 by 2025.


“I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to consider a donation to our campaign.  The LLS is a great organization that continues to make significant strides in cancer research, treatment, and support.  Their achievements go beyond just blood cancers and have a substantial impact on helping put an end to cancer once and for all.” – M.
