Volunteering is an exciting way to see great golf while being with your friends, family, co-workers, etc. and most importantly helping to raise money for Nationwide Children’s! Over the past ten years the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship has raised a total of $7.3 million in support of charity, primarily the hospital’s pediatric cancer program. This would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our hardworking and dedicated volunteer force.
