This event was originally put together in the spring of 2010 to assist the family of Jonah Hoser (then a 6th grade student at Diley Middle School) to defray the expenses of a prolonged stay in the Cardiac ICU at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Based on the success of the original event, the school leadership along with the mutual agreement of the Hoser family has decided to continue this event annually in Jonah’s memory. A new family will be selected each year to be the benefactor.
