Loveland, OhioDo It for Jack: The Jack Quehl Foundation Fentanyl Awareness Weekend will take place June 16-17 in downtown Loveland, Ohio.

Foundation President Stephanie Quehl said, ‚ÄúIgnorance about fentanyl is killing our kids. The foundation wants this to be an event for the community, a weekend where we can all come together and raise awareness about the dangers of illicit fentanyl. Our mission is to educate and speak to as many people as we can so that no one else loses their Jack.‚ÄĚ

Loveland-area businesses have come together in support of Do It for Jack: The Jack Quehl Foundation, backing the foundation’s mission with specials, proceeds sharing, and by wearing or displaying our logo.

The event kicks off on Wednesday, June 14, with a 5k run sponsored by Fleet Feet.

On Thursday, June 15, Tano Bistro hosts a meet-and-greet with foundation board members, donating a portion of the proceeds to the foundation.

Friday, June 16 features a welcome party at Hops and Berries Taproom.

The main event takes place on June 17 at Cindy’s Friendly Tavern from 3-6 PM with food, drink, raffles and other activities. Raffles include a Loveland basket featuring gift cards from local shops and a custom-made bourbon barrel cabinet.

The day finishes with Do It for Jack specials at Bishop’s Quarter, and selfies taken at Cappy’s selfie station will generate donations when pictures are tagged and posted on social media. There are also opportunities for community yoga classes at Rodi Italian and Simply Power Yoga. All proceeds from the Fentanyl Awareness Weekend will go to supporting the foundation’s mission of education and awareness.

Do It For Jack: The Jack Quehl Foundation was established in 2022 in loving memory of John Thomas (‚ÄúJack‚ÄĚ) Quehl, who tragically lost his life to fentanyl poisoning in 2021. Jack went to Moeller High School where he played football for 4 years.¬† He was a member of the National Honor Society and a National Merit Scholar. Jack finished in the top ten of his highly competitive class, and his classmates chose him to give the closing speech at their graduation ceremony.

The foundation’s mission is to honor Jack’s memory by educating the community about the threat of illicit fentanyl. In the month of May alone, Do It For Jack: The Jack Quehl Foundation spoke to more than 400 students and over 100 adults about the danger of fentanyl poisoning.
