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.
When my nephew Jonathan was born they discovered an abnormality with his aorta. At just seven weeks old Nationwide Children's Hospital performed open heart surgery, removing a section of his aorta to allow for healthy blood-flow. Thanks to the Nationwide Children's Hospital doctors, nurses and staff who took amazing care of Jonathan, he will live a happy and healthy life, as will many others because of Nationwide Children's Hospital. I am running in honor of Jonathan, to support all the surgeons and staff at nationwide Children's Hospital.
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?
Please consider supporting the most meaningful marathon in the country by making a donation today.
