We’re going the distance for good health. Last year, our partnership with Nationwide Children’s Columbus Marathon and Half Marathon yielded nearly $1 million for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Our support of the race helps provide for the nearly 1 million patient visits a year to the hospital. They care for children from all 50 states and around the world at their main campus and 70-plus satellite locations.
As a sponsor of the Columbus Marathon since it began in 1980 and a title sponsor since 2007, we’ve seen the number of participants grow to as many as 18,000 racers.
But it’s the individuals who stand out. Last year, Nationwide was honored to be a Platinum Mile sponsor for the Miracle Mile Patient Champions. For every mile on the race course, there are 26 inspiring stories of survival to encourage runners, walkers and race fans to celebrate the miracle of life. Learn more about the "Run for a Cause" with our marathon infographic and meet Molly at Mile 13.
We look forward to partnering again this year.
