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. I am participating in the race for this mission and I am determined to help children from all 50 states and more than 60 countries treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Won’t you join me in helping kids everywhere?
Additionally, I completed my pediatric residency at Nationwide Children's Hospital and am a community pediatrician in Columbus. This race and cause is very near and dear to me as I have many patients who utilize the wonderful services of Nationwide Children's Hospital.
This year, I am running in honor of Will, a wonderful child born with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. He is the son of my college roommate and med school friend Andrew Aten.
Please consider supporting the most meaningful marathon in the country by making a donation today.
