Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Telethon
Save the date for the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Telethon, which will air on WBNS-10TV on Saturday, May 31st and Sunday, June 1st. The Telethon raises money to support the mission of Nationwide Children's Hospital. All of the money raised locally during the Telethon stays in Columbus, benefiting the children in our community. We hope you will join us in supporting the patients and families we serve. On behalf of all the kids we treat – more than one million patient visits a year – thank you.
Shop for a Cause
Several of our Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partners are holding campaigns for Nationwide Children’s during the months of April and May. Stop by a Rite Aid, Circle K, Speedway, or Walmart & Sam’s Club (beginning May 1) location and look for our Miracle Balloon Campaign. Join in by purchasing a CMNH Balloon and help us heal sick and injured kids. Looking for a cute new necklace? Stop in to one of the local White House Black Market or Chico’s stores, or shop online to purchase a Children’s Miracle Network necklace and $10 will be donated to Nationwide Children’s. Thank you for supporting our wonderful CMNH partners!

Run, Walk and Fundraise for Kids, Cures, & Miracles!
The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon will take place Sunday, October 19th in downtown Columbus. This race 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 course in Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon in 2012 and 2013.
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 19th, 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.
