HARGROVE CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT LEADER WINS LLS MAN OF THE YEAR
Jun 16, 2017
Hargrove Engineers + Constructors’ Construction Management Leader, Jason Crain, was excited and honored to be named Man of the Year (MOTY) in the 2017 Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) campaign.
On June 15th, the South Alabama Chapter of the LLS held their grand finale celebration, and announced Jason Crain, PE, CCM, as the MOTY winner. Jason is Hargrove’s 5th Man or Woman of the Year, and was pleased run in honor of his teammate, Bob Mobley, the 2014 LLS MOTY and Leukemia survivor, and all others who are fighting or have fought blood cancer, as well as the medical professionals who continue to research so that they may find a cure for this deadly disease.
“It was humbling to run for and win this year’s Man of the Year race,” said Jason Crain. “While it is a great honor to receive recognition as MOTY, all candidates that participated in this campaign are winners. The program really goes above and beyond for blood cancer patients and sheds so much light on the cause. I’m grateful to my team and all of our supporters for helping us raise nearly $50,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and am honored to continue to represent Hargrove in this campaign.”
In the 5 years that Hargrove has participated in the MWOY campaign, they have raised over $200,000 for Leukemia and Lymphoma research. Those competitions, collectively, have amassed more than three quarters of a million dollars for research and patient services.
As Construction Management Leader at Hargrove Engineers + Constructors, Jason is a registered professional engineer in 7 states, Certified Construction Manager, a 2016 graduate of the Leadership Mobile class, along with being recognized in 2013 in Mobile Bay Magazine’s Top 40 under 40.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man and Woman of the Year campaign is a national fundraising competition occurring in many local communities across the US between March and June, with winners announced this year on June 15th. Raising funds for LLS blood cancer research, the candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. Every dollar raised counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of 10 weeks.
