With the ultimate goal of ending pediatric cancer, BuckeyeThon, which raises funds and awareness for the Hematology/Oncology and BMT Unit at Nationwide Children's Hospital, is the largest student-run philanthropy in the state of Ohio. BuckeyeThon Youth Philanthropy makes up about 5% of the funds raised each year and continues to grow! In 2020, with Youth Philanthropy's help, BuckeyeThon raised $2.2M for children with pediatric cancer and blood disorders!

So far, there are over 10 BuckeyeThon Youth Philanthropy programs in the Columbus area, and we have the ability to change the world with your help! Your support is an excellent example of what it means to give back for Columbus-area youth, and as a supporter, you represent a person who is part of a generation fighting for the next. As you raise money through Team Raiser, you will be able to win milestone, which are prizes throughout the year. Check your fundraising progress on your personal fundraising page and keep fundraising to get to the next level. Visit the YP website for information about YP and BT, as well as for resources and prize information!
