Sponsor a student for BuckeyeThon's Dance Marathon
Although our giving page is no longer active, you can still donate. If you would like to provide any additional support to our project, please do so here.
BuckeyeThon changes the lives of Ohio State students as much as it changes the lives of the kids they serve: the kids fighting cancer at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Each year, thousands of students volunteer to fundraise a minimum of $250 and stand for 12-hours in support of young cancer patients; they do so selflessly, but we often hear of the incredible positive impact participation has on students. We want to make sure every student has the opportunity to have that experience!
Last year, there were nearly 750 students who wanted to participate in BuckeyeThon who did not have the financial means or personal networks to enable them to do so, and we were able to support 123 of them. This year, we want help even more of them and ensure that no student is in that position. We are asking our past participants and supporters to donate so, together, we can make sure every student gets the chance to attend the Dance Marathon, to see the power of philanthropy and to experience the joy that the Ohio State community brings to the kids treated on the Hematology/Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplant floor of Nationwide Children's Hospital.
