SSP BuckeyeThon Team
Family and Friends,
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! Please support us in our commitment to fundraise For The Kids at Nationwide Children’s Hospital! We are among over 200 teams to have joined the Ohio State movement by participating in BuckeyeThon, and we have the ability to change the world with your help!
BuckeyeThon is the largest student-run philanthropy in the state of Ohio, which raises funds and awareness for the Hematology/Oncology and BMT Department of Columbus’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital: Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Nationwide Children’s treats all children - regardless of a family’s ability to pay. BuckeyeThon hosts a variety of events throughout the year, which culminate in its signature event: the Dance Marathon, a celebration full of hope and fun for the Miracle Families, dancers, and supporters. Last year, BuckeyeThon empowered Ohio State students to raise $1.6M For The Kids!
This year, we have established a team to participate in the Dance Marathon, which will occur on February 8-9, 2019. Please help us go beyond our team fundraising goal this year to truly change the lives For The Kids and families at Nationwide Children’s, which is right here in Columbus, Ohio!
We are asking for you to donate to our team fundraising page by clicking the "Support Us" button above or by donating directly to a member of our team. If you are unable to donate this year, we completely understand; we just ask that you keep the Ohio State community in your thoughts as we continue to work to change the world. Also, we ask that you continue to spread awareness for this cause, as it is one for which we are fighting with thousands of other Buckeyes! Feel free to forward this page on to friends and family members of your own so together we can fight For The Kids who cannot fight by themselves.
We express our sincere thanks to all of you for your willingness and desire to help us in our fundraising efforts, and we hope all of you feel just as connected to this cause and movement as we do!

As part of their cooperative living experience, students engage in a variety of activities, leadership development opportunities, and service projects.
A program steeped in tradition with a rich history, SSP supports students in their transition to college. SSP also connects students to valuable academic and personal resources on campus.
