Occurring in the beginning of Autumn Semester, BuckeyeThon’s Miracle Miles 5K is BuckeyeThon’s kick-off event for the academic year. Following the summer, this event is the first opportunity for students, faculty, and the entire community to interact with the BuckeyeThon kids and families while running to support the fight against pediatric cancer.
