Celebrating a Forty Year Partnership
Since its inception forty years ago, the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide has raised more than $13 million for Nationwide Children's Hospital and our Memorial Tournament Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This year, eight Patient Champions, representing just a fraction of the sick and injured children cared for by the Hospital, enjoyed VIP experiences including a special visit with Barbara Nicklaus. Both Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide have been long-time friends of Nationwide Children’s and we are proud of and grateful for our longstanding partnership.

Thank You Applebee's!
A special thank you to 4 North Central Ohio Applebee’s locations in Mansfield, Ashland and Wooster for raising funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital! The restaurant sold paper icons during the month of May to support the hospital in honor of Kenith, who was cared for by our Cleft Lip and Palate Center.

Thank you, Applebee’s, for helping kids everywhere like Kenith!
