Strong Like Sam

The Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon

Join our team and help us support Nationwide Children's Hospital!

Sam is a 10 year old boy, beloved son, loving brother, loyal friend, avid runner and strong swimmer. On Halloween he thought he had shin splints, and less than two weeks later he was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. Ewing's is an aggressive cancer, but Sam is stronger. He is enduring months of chemotherapy, multiple surgeries and ongoing physical therapy. The Strong Like Sam team is committed to fundraising to support Nationwide Children's Hospital, and bringing awareness to these battles too many children are facing. 

Please consider supporting the most meaningful marathon in the country by making a donation today.
