Nationwide is helping to make every step count toward healthy kids with our sponsorship of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon Sunday, October 16, 2016.
The expo will be held October 14-15.
Nationwide is proud to have been a sponsor of the Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon since its inception 37 years ago.
We’re especially proud that our combined sports sponsorships raise more than $4 million a year to benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital. It all adds up to making the future a little brighter for kids like our 2016 Miracle Mile Patient Champion Jude Hummer.
Meet our Patient Champion
With the theme “Motivated,” this year’s marathon features 26 Patient Champion stations along the Miracle Miles that comprise the route through downtown Columbus.
Jude will be at Mile 12 at the Nationwide booth at the corner of E. Long and N. High streets.
Come by and meet the 9-year old, who plays soccer, football, baseball and basketball, is an avid fan of the Buckeyes, and Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors. Jude also is a math wiz at school.
Jude spends many evenings cheering on his big brother, Dylan, who plays high school football and basketball, and helps his mom, Tara, keep the books for his sister’s basketball games. Keeping track of all those scores has honed Jude’s math skills.
We’re proud to do our part
Nationwide is proud to have built a legacy of supporting Nationwide Children’s Hospital, one of the preeminent children’s hospitals in the world.
We wish all the Columbus Marathon athletes good luck and extend a special thanks to the participants, volunteers and sponsors.
