At Nationwide, we’ve cultivated an important relationship with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to help kids get the care they need. That’s why we’re honored to have been a founding sponsor of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon since the first race 38 years ago.
Our 2017 Patient Champion
This year’s patient champion is 13-year-old Halle Roper, who loves being a cheerleader and Girl Scout. No matter what life throws at her, Halle is always upbeat and full of sunshine and love.
Through her strong spirit, the love and support of her family and the hard work of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Halle can pursue her passions. Children like Halle are the reason we’ve raised more than $6 million for the hospital since 2012 through the marathon and our other sports sponsorships.
Doing our part
Nationwide is proud to have built a legacy of supporting Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a world-renowned facility that treats more than 1.4 million kids just like Halle every year.
We wish all the participants in the Columbus Marathon good luck and would like extend a special thanks to the volunteers and sponsors.
