The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon 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 of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon in 2012 and 2013. Meet them here.
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.
Children’s Champions are participants who chose to run or walk or cheer for the marathon or 1/2 marathon while fundraising for Nationwide Children’s.
As a Children’s Champion, you have the opportunity to reach beyond personal training goals and support another mission. To cure, to mend, and comfort each child that walks through the doors of Nationwide Children’s. Your fundraising efforts help provide every child with the highest quality of care, regardless of the child’s diagnosis or the family’s ability to pay.
