My Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Fundraising Page!
Thank you for visiting my Children's Champion page.
Did you know the purpose of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon is to raise funds to support life-saving research and care? Nationwide Children’s Hospital is committed to treating all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay, which cannot be achieved without community support and generosity. Even though the race is canceled this year I (Mary) plan to run my own race around our town for this mission as I am determined to help children from all 50 states and more than 60 countries treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
Our family will be forever grateful for the exceptional treatment and care Ernie has received the first few years of his life from Nationwide Children's Hospital. Running a marathon is our small way of showing our appreciation for this special place.
Though this is certainly an unusual year, it is important to us to still show our support for the hospital. Therefore I have set some special fundraising goals that may allow for company on my run.
- Half Marathon
- $200 Half Marathon with Ernie in the stroller
- $400 Half Marathon with Ernie and Martha in the double stroller
- $600 Full Marathon alone
- $800 Full Marathon with Ernie
- $1000 Full Marathon with Ernie and Martha*
*I don't feel confident Martha will last the duration of a full marathon (especially at the speed I'll be going pushing a double), but I would do my best to keep her with us as long as possible.
Won’t you join me in helping kids everywhere?
