Thank you for your interest in volunteering for The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship! The 12th annual event will take place August 20 – 26, 2018 at The Ohio State University Golf Club – Scarlet Course.

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 eleven years the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship has donated a total of over $9.3 million in support of the hospital’s pediatric cancer program, over $2 million in 2017 alone! This would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our hardworking and dedicated volunteer force. THANK YOU!
