Students of the Year Cincinnati

Team Ole | Team Ole's Campaign Team

Welcome to Team Ole's SOY Fundraising Page!

Jan 07, 2020

I am honored to participate as a team member for the 2020 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to support my candidate and am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Olivia Bold: I am a Senior at Seton High School and am running for Students of the Year in loving memory of my amazing Dad, Emmett Bold Sr. who we tragically lost to complications from blood cancer in 2011. I am doing this to prevent other children from going through what my family and I did. In June of 2009, my Dad was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome. This not only affected him, but my whole family. Since then, My family and I have been extremely involved with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society because of the amazing support they gave us while my Dad was battling cancer.

Logan Schneider: I am a Junior at Elder High School and I am a Leukemia survivor. I was diagnosed in December of 2011. I went through 3 1/2 years of intense treatment. I was unable to attend school for most of my third grade year and could not play the sports that I loved during most of my treatment. I am very passionate about fundraising for LLS because I know first hand the effect that Cancer can have on not just a patient but also their family. I am campaigning this year to progress the research that LLS is performing so that those patients who have been affected may have a better chance at survival and a long and healthy life, as I have. 

Eli Darnell: I am a Senior at Elder High School and am participating in the LLS Students of the Year
Campaign in memory of my grandma, Barbara Klosterman, who passed away in 1990 from leukemia when my
mom was 19 years old. I never had a chance to meet her. I know that with the advances that have been made in

cancer treatment, through LLS funded research, if she were diagnosed today she would have had a better chance
of survival.

 

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!

    Simply put it takes people of courage such as these kids to step out of their comfort zone to accomplish something extraordinary in life and that accomplishment will some day be a cure for this terrible disease. Olivia’s willingness to do so in the honor of her father will keep others from losing loved ones as I and my family did our big brother Pete. God love the 3 of you and those working toward a cure.
