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. If all of the 18,000 runners in the Full and Half Marathon would raise $500, that is $9 MILLION that would benefit children from all 50 states and more than 60 countries that are treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
One of those children is our son, Theo, who was diagnosed in August 2018 with Leukemia. Since his diagnosis, we have been blown away by the treatment and support Nationwide Children's gives. We also know that many are not as fortuante as we are when it comes to the support that dealing with these setbacks requires. While Nationwide provides care for everything children deal with medically, including their new "On Our Sleeves" campaign to support Pediatric Mental Health, donations through this page will support the Hemotology and Oncology unit which has been so amazing to our family and to countless others. It is my hope that you will please help me in supporting these kids, and their families, so they know they are not alone in their fight.
"You can never pay back, but, you can always pay forward."
Please consider supporting the most meaningful marathon in the country by making a donation today.
