This 10th annual event is organized by relatives of the Schlaegel family with the help of the Columbus Running Company Charity Fund. The family event is designed to raise funds and awareness for Nationwide Children's Hospital's Muscular Dystrophy Research Institute, where Megan Schlaegel dedicated much of her time. In 2016 the event raised nearly $16k for the Hospital. Help us reach our goal and increase that amount in 2017!
The event features a large four-mile loop that starts and finishes at Central Crossing High School in Grove City. At the same time we will host a 1.5-mile walk using a different loop course that starts and finishes with the four miler. Both events begin at noon.
Megan was an avid runner whose last race was the CRC Charity Fund's Trot for Tots event in Dublin, to benefit the Children's Hospital. She ran on a team called the 'The Freezing Hotties' with the same friends and family behind putting on this new event in her honor. Our goal is to create an entertaining event for runners and walkers of all abilities and ages- which benefits Children's Muscular Dystrophy Research.
All registrants will receive a unique candle and holder. Results will be posted here shortly after the event.
