For those of you still looking for ways to give back this year (as a reminder, here’s how to sign up to support Nationwide Children’s Hospital by becoming a Children’s Champion), today’s tip is for you: Run or walk for a cause.

Join a charity team

In addition to our namesake charitable partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, we also traditionally partner with a number of other groups. Many athletes also organize their own fundraising efforts on behalf of a myriad of charities. Click here for more information on joining these teams, including:

  • Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training
  • Komen Columbus Marathon for the Cure
  • Team Ronald McDonald House Charities
  • National Hospice Foundation’s Run to Remember
  • ROC On! (Run Over Cancer)
  • National MS Society’s Run MS
  • Team Hope International

Donate shoes

We are also continuing our partnership with One World Running this year, a Boulder, Colorado, based group that collects running shoes and distributes them to needy people in the US and abroad. Grab your old, unwanted shoes drop them at the One World Running booth during the Health and Fitness Expo, and the group will get them onto a new pair of feet.
