ALZ Stars
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Registration for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus half marathon sold out, but for those of you who have already signed up for the half or plan on doing the full marathon on Sunday, October 19th, there is still time to become an ALZ Star.

The ALZ Stars program creates an opportunity for runners, cyclists, swimmers and triathletes to test their limits while pursuing progress in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. ALZ Stars go the distance in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, increasing awareness and inspiring others to take action. As an ALZ Star, you will receive an official race jersey, fundraising support and website and, most importantly, join a community determined to leave its mark in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

ALSO, raise $600 and the Alzheimer's Association will pay your registration fee!

Interested in joining team ALZ Stars, follow these steps:
