OCTOBER 19, 2014.
DETAILS COMING SOON
The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon is about much more than running or walking an incredible distance. It’s about 24 Miracle Mile Patient Champions who have shared their stories to inspire you. 1 Angel Mile to honor, remember, and celebrate those who have already finished their race. And 1 Encore Mile, for the patients who lined the inaugural Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon in 2012. Meet them here.
26.2 miles, each with a different story, a new inspiration, and another reason to keep running. These miraculous kids will be on each mile of the marathon on October 20th, supporting you every step of the way. This is your opportunity to support them. Join Children’s Champions now and fundraise for those cared for at Nationwide Children’s.
THE PARTNERSHIP CONTINUES
Nationwide Children’s Hospital is honored to be the title beneficiary for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon for the second year.
The 2013 event raised $1.25 million and counting for Nationwide Children's Hospital in the second year of the partnership. This includes a $200,000 contribution from the Columbus Marathon board of trustees; $100,000 of that contribution will be directed to the Pulmonary Department at Nationwide Children's in honor of long-time Columbus Marathon volunteers Brent and Catherine LaCount and their daughter, Berkley.
