Toledo LifeSmarts Members Austyn Smith, Alex Palermo, Aaron Quinn, Emily Tyner, and captain Adam Slighte, with coach Rene’ Ketchum and assistant coach Teresa Slighte. Adam took 3rd in Last Smarty Standing and won a $50.00 gift card. The Team overall was 23rd.
Members had fun competing, visiting Dinosaur Ridge and the Zoo. They would also like to thank JumpStart for their support and generous $100.00 gift card to each member for spending money.
