Office of Student Life



BuckeyeThon at The Ohio State University

The mission of BuckeyeThon is to create awareness and raise funds for children with cancer. As an official program of the Office of Student Life at The Ohio State University, BuckeyeThon focuses on children being treated in the Hematology, Oncology and Blood & Marrow Transplant Unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. BuckeyeThon works to achieve this mission through programs, which enhance the student experience; promote the value of philanthropy; establish a spirit of service; and cultivate relationships between students, faculty, staff, and community members.

Now more than ever the children at Nationwide Children's Hospital need your help. This year BuckeyeThon is committed to raising $2 Million For The Kids at Nationwide Children's Hospital because kids can't wait for a cure or for the curve to flatten. Hospitals, including Nationwide Children's Hospital, need your donation to invest in telehealth services, personal protective equipment (PPE), and COVID-19 testing supplies. Please consider fundraising for BuckeyeThon,
donating to BuckeyeThon, or spreading awareness on your social media.
