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. As many of you know, I have spent a great deal of time in the hospital over my lifetime. Having kidney disease as a lifelong illness has made me a strong person and it has also given me a strong desire to help others, particularly children. Last year I ran the Columbus Half Marathon and I was encouraged and amazed by the children who were well enough to stand or sit outside of the hospital and cheer for the runners as we passed by and I was even more encouraged by the children who were too ill to be outside yet they stood, sat, or laid in their beds next to the window so they could wave and cheer. 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?
