For The Kids.

Because kids can't wait for a cure

BuckeyeThon looks a little different this year with COVID-19 restrictions, but the patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital still need your help now more than ever.

BuckeyeThon supports Nationwide Children's Hospital

The mission of BuckeyeThon is to create awareness and raise funds for children with cancer and blood disorders. As an official program of the Office of Student Life at The Ohio State University, BuckeyeThon focuses on children being treated in the Hematology, Oncology and Blood & Marrow Transport Unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. BuckeyeThon works to achieve this mission through programs, which enhance the student experience; promote the value of philanthropy; establish a spirit of service; and cultivate relationships between students, faculty, staff, and community members.

Now more than ever the children at Nationwide Children's Hospital need your help. This year BuckeyeThon is committed to raising $2 Million For The Kids at Nationwide Children's Hospital because kids can't wait for a cure or for the curve to flatten.

Hospitals, including Nationwide Children's Hospital, need your donation to invest in telehealth services, personal protective equipment (PPE) and COVID-19 testing supplies.
