Dante Landolfi and Molly O'Connor, both students at Barrington Elementary School, received the Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy Award. Inspired by Race for the Cure, the two launched, "Beat Michigan! Beat Cancer!," raising more than $22,000 for ovarian and breast cancer research from 900 race participants.

Dr. Jerome and Mrs. Margaret Cunningham of Upper Arlington received the Leave a Legacy Award. They were nominated for the award by the Central Ohio Planned Giving Council.

The Cunninghams were recognized for their commitment to improving central Ohio. They also established a trust fund at the Columbus Foundation to address future issues and needs that arise in the community.
