Race for a Reason

To find out more information on the OhioHealth Race for a Reason and to register, please visit!

This annual race, which will take place on April 21st, 2018, is comprised of six different events including a Remote Race where #OHIOFamily alumni are encouraged to take part in the event from any location across the United States.

We would like to also take this opportunity to thank all of our 2017 race participants, volunteers, and sponsors for creating a successful event raising over $60,000 for 52 different "reasons," which include charities, student organizations, and community initiatives.

If you'd like more information on the race, on becoming a 2018 sponsor, or on how to get involved, please contact our Race Director Kelsey Hannah at or (740) 593-9370.

This year our goal is to raise $75,000 and host more than 1,000 race participants.
