Nationwide lends support to showcase up-and-coming golfers at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, an extension of the PGA TOUR. Over the past six years, the Championship has donated a total of $2,725,000 in support of the hospital’s pediatric cancer program.
In 2012, the tournament raised $625,000 for pediatric cancer research and treatment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The total marks the largest single-season charitable donation raised by the tournament for the hospital in the history of the popular and unique Web.com Tour event.
The Tour identifies those players who are ready to compete and win on golf's biggest stage. The 2013 championship was the third of four tournaments to determine the 50 players to earn PGA TOUR playing privileges for the 2013-2014 season.
