The Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon has helped raise millions of dollars for charity.
In addition to our namesake charitable partnership with Nationwide Children's Hospital, we have traditionally partnered with a number of other groups. Many athletes also organize their own fundraising efforts on behalf of a myriad of charities.

The challenges faced by the more than 2,500 children and families served by RMHC of Central Ohio at the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio each year—they are running their own marathons as they fight disease, illness and injury. However, RMHC of Central Ohio is there to provide strength and support to get them through the toughest of times. Team RMHC is a part of this living support system. We run to show RMHC of Central Ohio families that there is strength in numbers—strength in a team of runners passionately raising funds, awareness and advocacy for the Charity. As we train for and run 13.1 or 26.2 miles on October 16 we offer hope, inspiration and compassion for Ronald McDonald House families. For more information about Team RMHC, please contact Ryan Wilkins at Ryan.Wilkins@RMHC-CentralOhio.org or visit their website.

ROC On! (Run Over Cancer) was developed in 2008 by Laurie Dangler, M.D. and her friends and family to increase the public's awareness of the effect of brain cancer and to help raise funds for brain cancer research. The team was formed after Laurie was diagnosed with brain cancer while training to run the Columbus Half Marathon in 2007. ROC on! raises over $15,000.00 each year to support research and continues to grow in members. ROC on! participates in many races across the United States. You do not have to be a runner to join. Many team members walk the races and we will always welcome volunteers to help us with the team.
