The Columbus Marathon and Nationwide Insurance announced Nationwide Children’s Hospital as the title beneficiary of the annual running and walking event, renaming it the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon.
The goal of the partnership is to engage the community while gaining corporate and participant support of Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s non-profit mission. Nationwide Insurance remains as one of the event’s lead sponsors and will continue providing corporate stewardship.
To kick-off the spirit of charitable giving, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon will match the first $100,000 in donations that are raised for the hospital by Children’s Champions participants in the 2012 race. Hopes are that other corporate partners will provide similar matching opportunities to encourage community fundraising efforts. Join now!
Many on-course and race weekend sponsorships will be available. All sponsorships benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital. For more information, please contact Lindsey Gulliver at (614) 355-0855.
