Man of the Year is a 10-week fundraising campaign aimed at fighting cancer. Scott has set a very challenging goal of raising more than $250,000 during the campaign.

Scott was diagnosed with stage 3 diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma back in 2007 when he was just 26 years old. Doctors gave him a 50-50 chance of surviving for five years and told him it was unlikely that he would be able to father children. After undergoing extensive chemotherapy, Scott went into remission and is now extremely happy to be celebrating 10 years of being cancer-free alongside wife Jaci and daughters, Nora and Harper.

It’s now Scott’s goal to help the organization that funded the research that saved his life and the lives of many others who have suffered from blood cancers, by partnering with ROUSH and the Wheelhouse Foundation.

Team Remission10 and the Man of the Year campaign are hosting a raffle and one lucky winner will win a 2016 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang worth more than $75,000!

 

There will also be other prizes including Vegas off-road experiences and ROUSH swag bags containing branded merchandise.

Raffle tickets are $100 each and can be purchased through May 31. The winner will be announced June 3.
