With the ultimate goal of ending pediatric cancer, BuckeyeThon, which raises funds and awareness for the Hematology/Oncology and BMT Unit at Nationwide Children's Hospital, is the largest student-run philanthropy in the state of Ohio.  BuckeyeThon Youth Philanthropy makes up about 5% of the funds raised each year, with our 13 area programs, and are growing exponentially!  Last year, with Youth Philanthropy's help, BuckeyeThon raised $2.2M For The Kids!

How does it work? 

Register for the 5K through our Team Raiser. You will also need to download the Nike Run Club app and make an account; this is the platform we will use to track your progress! You have the entire week to run, walk, or move. 
This is a great opportunity to fundraise for your personal fundraising page! We encourage you to personally ask people to pledge money for every mile or 5K you run (ex. Your aunt pledges $5 for every mile you run).
