Lifesaving research for children
Recognizing the potential for genomic medicine, Nationwide Children’s Hospital established the Steve and Cindy Rasmussen Institute for Genomic Medicine in 2016 to expand the availability of clinical genetic and genomic testing. Genomic medicine has been found to help diagnose conditions earlier, better predict patient outcomes and personalize treatment.

Shining a light of hope
In 2022, the 12th annual Nationwide Children’s Hospital Legends Luncheon, presented by Nationwide at the Memorial Tournament, raised $1.3 million for the alliance between Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, bringing the 12-year total to more than $12 million.
Through the Legends Luncheon, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, the Nationwide’s Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon, the Columbus Crew, and a partnership with The Dale Jr. Foundation, Nationwide sports marketing platforms have helped raise more than $55 million for Nationwide Children’s Hospital since 2011.
All proceeds of the Legends Luncheon directly benefit the young patients and families that the hospital compassionately serves each day. To learn more, read this story about Neil Taylor, the 2022 Nicklaus Youth Spirit Award winner.
