It's that time of year again, because BuckeyeThon Dance Marathon is just around the corner! BuckeyeThon is the largest, student-run philanthropy at The Ohio State University. With an ultimate goal of ending childhood cancer, BuckeyeThon works to raise money to support the kids treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital. This year, their annual Dance Marathon will bring together thousands of Buckeyes in The Ohio Union. During two 12-hour dance marathons, students will dance the hours away to hopefully reach their fundraising goal of one million dollars! However, in order to reach their goal, they need support from Buckeye and Nationwide Children's fans like you!

Help them reach their goal by making a donation at 

In the meantime, we're giving all of the BuckeyeThon students and supporters a high-five for making so many miracles happen right here in central Ohio!
