This year's trophy winner, selected by LLS staff, is Walter Johnson High School, where Holt helped get the whole competitive tradition started in 2006. Their new fundraising event, Cats 4 the Cure Music Fest was a music festival for the school community, featuring notable musicians -- and a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society “Honored Hero” patient. Patriot High School's Beard Bounty shaving event (targeting teachers) was First Runner-Up. And Osbourn Park High School's Game Night was Second Runner-Up.
Each schools’ award amounts will be added to their fundraising totals for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society -- funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. Past winners are here.
