Loveland, Ohio – Word on the street is that the 7-week campaign was such an eye-opening experience and they are grateful to have experienced it together. They couldn’t have accomplished what they did without family, school, and community support!

Loveland Magazine was invited by the Loveland team to “The Grand Finale Celebration” held on March 16 at the Sharonville Convention Center. The evening was hosted by the LLS-Ohio River Valley Region to celebrate the successful 7-week campaigns by area high school teams to raise awareness and dollars to cure Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and Myeloma. The funds support research and to support and improve the quality of life for patients and families.

All of the “Students Visionaries of the Year” as they are called, were celebrated and given a standing ovation with loud cheers.

Zervos, Schwab, and, Lola Jones led Team CoUREage 5.0 and a team of volunteers. They asked Loveland Magazine to extend their appreciation to Britney Frietch Reality, Zicka Homes, Hyperdrive, The Ben Morrison Foundation, Loveland Magazine, and Bishops Quarter.
