About Our Organization
The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ˝ 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 & ˝ Marathon in 2012 and 2013.
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 participants every step of the way. This is your opportunity to support them. Join Children’s Champions now – the community of people who raise funds and create awareness for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
For the third consecutive year, Nationwide Children’s Hospital has been chosen as the title beneficiary of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ˝ Marathon. Through sponsorships and individual donations, the race has raised over $2 million over the past two years. All funds support the mission of Nationwide Children’s Hospital: to provide every child with the highest quality of care, regardless of the child’s diagnosis or the family’s ability to pay. It’s all for Kids, Cures & Miracles.
