SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES ~ Printable Version

The Development Board of Nationwide Children’s Hospital is proud to announce that the sixth annual Great Columbus Duck Race will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017 on the Scioto Mile. This year’s event is partnering with the Columbus Food Truck Festival, the largest food truck festival in the Midwest.

Our rubber duck race will attract thousands of participants for not only the race, but also, the family and children’s activities. Our partnership with the Columbus Food Truck Festival also expand the reach of our event to well over 50,000 people who annually attend the festival.

The Great Columbus Duck Race gives your company the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children while reaching thousands of Central Ohioans who have either purchased ducks and/or are attending the event.

Proceeds benefit The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The Institute is focused on discovery – an improved treatment for a serious childhood illness, an exciting new insight into a basic biological process, a pioneering strategy to prevent injury or disease, or an innovative way to deliver care to the most vulnerable of our children.

The dream of treating, curing, and even preventing childhood diseases has inspired doctors and scientists for more than four decades. It is an unending search for answers, fueled by the passion of dedicated researchers and those like the Development Board who invest in their ground-breaking work.

We would like for you to consider becoming a sponsor of this wonderful event. Below you will find a variety of Sponsorship Levels and Benefits to suit your needs. Your sponsorship will provide you with a range of investment benefits. Download a Sponsor Packet.
