BuckeyeThon: Columbus State Team

Student News | Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Columbus State Community College is participating with Ohio State University for the annual BuckeyeThon to help raise money for kids with pediatric cancer. BuckeyeThon started in 1999, and it works with Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the Hematology/Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. Last year, the Columbus State’s Honors Program joined in BuckeyeThon. This year we want the entire student body to have the opportunity to join BuckeyeThon.

If you want information on how to join, or more information about BuckeyeThon, email Abby Kelly. Most of the interaction leading up to the end-of-year dance marathon will be meetings which team captains host at Columbus State.

BuckeyeThon is not only a great cause but helps Columbus State students get in touch with those in the community that needs the support most. It’s also an opportunity for you to get to know people around Columbus. There are some fun events and fundraisers throughout the year that you have the chance to attend. You will also have the opportunity to meet some of the families affected by pediatric cancer and kids who are in the battle themselves.

After a year of fundraising, there is a Dance Marathon in February where it is an annual celebration of the fundraising that Ohio State has done for the year in support of Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This past year, BuckeyeThon raised $1.7 million. Join the movement and push the next mark to two million!
