Since 2012, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Columbus Marathon have partnered together help make miracles happen. The Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon has raised more than $7 million to support life-saving research and care with help of our dedicated sponsors and peer-to-peer fundraisers known as our Marathon Children’s Champions.

One special mile of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon is dedicated to the Angels who are no longer here with us. Each year, our brave families come together to support one another, share memories, and celebrate the days they shared with their children.
The Encore Mile, sponsored by Big Lots, is for all the patients who represented Nationwide Children’s Hospital on each mile of a previous Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon.
