Support Akron Children's Hospital

Since we were established in 2003, the Akron Marathon Charitable Corporation has sought to use our events to promote health and fitness, stimulate the local economy, galvanize the community, and benefit charitable organizations. Following the successful debut of the Race Series this past summer, we are happy to partner with Akron Children's Hospital as the title beneficiary of our Race Series. Our partnership allows our events to be a major fundraiser for the hospital which has been providing family-centered care to the children of northern Ohio regardless of their ability to pay for over 125 years.

How can you help?

As a participant of any of our world-class running events, you have several ways to make an impact for the Hospital:

Every participant has the opportunity to make a one-time donation to Akron Children's Hospital during the registration process when signing up for any event in the Akron Children's Hospital Akron Marathon Race Series.

You can also become a Children’s Champion by joining Akron Children’s Hospital in making sure that all children have the opportunity to receive the finest pediatric care by committing to raise $1,000.
