HAMILTON, Ohio -- Seventeen teams played in a softball tournament in Hamilton Saturday, where the grand prize was much bigger than any trophy.

The tournament was the first fundraising event for the I Love You More Than You Know Project, a foundation started by Miami University student Jordan Stockelman to help recovering addicts and their families.

Stockelman began the foundation after her mother died as a result of alcoholism.

"I just want to help as many people as I can," she said. "I want people to understand that there are other people that are suffering from this...I want them to know that I'm here for them as well as everyone else is."
