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?
I am running my FIRST MARATHON and I thought of no better reason to run, than for children, especially in memory of my nephew Max, who was taken from us way to young. He was an enigmatic, bright shining boy and we him miss beyond words. I will take every last step in his memory and I hope you will help by cheering me on race day!
I chose to fundraise for my dear fried Liz Sklaw's team, ETHAN IS SKLAWSOME!! Ethan is one of Lennon's bff's and he was recently diagnosed with Pediatric Scleroderma or commonly referred to as morphea in children. It is considered an autoimmune disease and could potentially affect his muscles and bones. With this particular diagnosis, a major problem can be growth defects and deformities. The NCH Half Marathon support's the search for answers. Not just for Ethan but for all children with rare rheumatologic diseases! Please consider supporting me as I run the NHC Marathon, the most meaningful marathon in the country by making a donation today. Thank you and I can't wait to see many of your smiling faces on race day!!
