The following message was sent to all Ohio State students, faculty, and staff on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
Best Ohio State Community:
Throughout the year, thousands of our university students work together through BuckeyeThon to help children with childhood cancer and blood disorders at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. They do this by involving our community, by fostering a spirit of service and philanthropy and, of course, by dancing.
Today, on BuckeyeThon’s 2021 Day of Miracles, we invite you to join us in celebrating and supporting this extraordinary cause. All funds raised will go directly to helping children and their families at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. You can contribute to an individual student fundraiser or donate to the general fund. No amount is too small to make a big difference.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, BuckeyeThon raised more than $2 million last year to fund life-saving research, advance clinical care and provide essential support to children battling cancer and blood disorders. This year, with your help, they can do it again.
Thank you for your attention and thank you to the thousands of students who are doing everything they can For the children.
