As a Children’s Champion, you’ve committed to raise $1,000 for Akron Children’s Hospital through your participation in the Akron Children’s Hospital Akron Marathon Race Series. Thank you for your generosity and support!


Champions come in all shapes and sizes at Akron Children’s. They’re members of our medical team who dedicate their lives to care for our patients. They’re family members and friends who support their loved ones during difficult times. They’re the community supporters – like you – who financially support our operations so that we can continue offering world-class, life-sustaining care.


But most importantly, they’re our patients – the infants, children, teens and even adults who overcome the odds – big or small. They are our heroes. And during the 2018 FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half Marathon & Team Relay on Sept. 29, 2018, you’ll see the stories and photos of these “heroes” as you prepare for the race – and even on race day! 


Your fundraising efforts help us keep our 3 promises to the more than 900,000 patients who walk through our doors every year:

• To treat others as we would like to be treated.

• To care for every child as we would our own.

• To turn no child away for any reason.


Thank you for becoming a Children’s Champion and doing “something super” for the

patients we are privileged to serve.
