Register to Fundraise

Since 2012, Nationwide Children’s Hospital has been honored to be the title beneficiary for this amazing event, and 2024 marks the thirteenth year of our partnership. So far, more than $13 million has been raised for life-saving research and care.

Register to become a Children’s Champion. Children's Champions are those who fundraise for Nationwide Children's Hospital. Last year alone, our Children’s Champions raised over $530,000 to help give kids hope. Whether you’re walking, running, volunteering or cheering others on, you can support Nationwide Children's Hospital and the patients we treat by fundraising.

Make this year’s race extra special by not only crossing the finish line, but going the distance to help find cures, save lives and create best outcomes for kids here and around the world.

There is no minimum fundraising requirement because every dollar makes a difference.
