I am running this half marathon in honor of my superhero, my son Connor. During his long journey with Auto-Immune Neutropenia, he was put through more medical tests and procedures than most adults will ever experience. The strength he showed during those tough days gives me the motivation to train and run 13.1 miles.
After 6 long years, we finally received the gift of his recovery last July. COVID limited us from a large celebration in 2020, so this fundraiser will serve as one way to honor him.
Help pay it forward and support families like us!
We were blessed to have Nationwide Children's for Connor. 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. Won’t you join me in helping kids everywhere? Your child or neighbor could be impacted by NCH, just like our family.
