The 3rd Annual Megan’s Miles Run/Walk, benefitting Muscular Dystrophy research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will be held on Sunday, May 30 at noon at Central Crossing High School.
Attendees are encouraged to lace up their shoes and run or walk in this special fundraiser in honor of a Nationwide Children’s employee who passed away three years ago in a tragic car accident. Megan Schleagel was a part of the research team at Nationwide Children’s and was involved in researching cures for muscular dystrophy.
In honor of her passion to find a cure, this event was organized by the family and friends of the Schleagel family with the help of the Columbus Running Company Charity Fund. In 2009, Megan’s Miles raised more than $15,000 for Nationwide Children’s and the team hopes to double last year’s contributions.
The 4-mile run and 1.5-mile walk will begin and end at Central Crossing High School. Registration is $17 per person, $12 per person for groups/families of three or more, or $22 the day of the race. To register for Megan’s Miles, visit http://www.columbusrunning.com.
