Patti's Fundraising Page
Thank you for visiting my Children's Champion page. Did you know the purpose of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon is to raise funds to support life-saving research and care? Nationwide Children’s Hospital is committed to treating all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay, which cannot be achieved without community support and generosity. I am participating in the race for this mission and I am determined to help children from all 50 states and more than 60 countries treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Won’t you join me in helping kids everywhere?
All of the above is really important to me. There is more to it for me. This year marks my fifth Nationwide Children's half marathon. I will also have already turned 65 years old. For me that is a big deal. I started doing this with encouragement from my family after my grandaughter Samantha Jane McCarthy died eight years ago, in fact the race this year is on the eighth anniversary of her death. This year I wanted to do something special, I want to give back for all the kids that can't run. I want to be a Childrens Champion.
Help me make this a different kind of PR, help me to become one of the top fundraisers.
Please consider supporting the most meaningful marathon in the country by making a donation today.
