Meet the Patient Champions

As the 18,000 runners and walkers anxiously wait in the corals on Sunday, October 19th, our Patient Champions will be setting up their cheer stations along each mile of the course! The 24 individual Patient Champions, Angel Mile and Encore Mile are sure to motivate the runners and walkers through every mile with their big orange foam hands, noise makers, and decorated miles. Read the stories of each of our patient champions here.


The 1/2 Marathon is Sold Out!

The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus ½ Marathon is sold out! There are still registration spots available for the full marathon, but it is expected to sell out momentarily. If you were unable to sign up in time, monitor the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon Facebook Page as many registered participants are trying to get rid of their registration. You may transfer your registration until September 7th through the transfer site.


Get Creative with Your Fundraising!

Do you know how to sew, make a pitcher of lemonade or wash a car? Are you savvy with graphic design, a guitar or teaching kids how to swim? Turn your talents into fundraisers! Offer your time and expertise in exchange for donations to your Children’s Champions page. You can also host a fundraising event such as a garage sale, wine night or bake sale. Maybe even ask for donations to your page instead of birthday or special occasion gifts! Tell us the creative ways you are fundraising and why you chose to be a Children’s Champion here


We want to hear from you!

We know each Children’s Champion has their own story. You have a personal reason that you chose to fundraise, and you have a unique way of raising funds! Tell us about it on Facebook, show us on Instagram, and share your story on our website. You may even be featured in the Columbus Dispatch Race Guide! Be sure to use the hashtag #ChildrensChampions as you fundraise, train and raise awareness over these next few months.
