Help Kolton raise money

For participating in 2021 FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half Marathon, & Team Relay

My Story…

Since my son Andrew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia last year at Akron Children's Hospital, I have turned to running to help find peace and ready myself for the challenges of supporting a five-year-old battling cancer. 

Andrew and our family have found an incredible partner in that fight with the phenomenal people at Akron Children's Hospital!  They have taken an awful experience, no family should ever have to endure and embraced us.  They are healing Andrew, supporting us, and walking with us on every step of his journey.  

Last year thanks to the incredible people in our lives, Andrew's story was able to help capture the attention of people around the world and raise nearly $20,000 to support Akron Children's Hospital!  Learn more here:

And we'll be back again this year to help raise more funds for Akron Children's!

Our family has experienced love and support we could never imagine through the incredible caregivers at Akron Children's Hospital.  I could not even begin to imagine where we would be if it was not for them.  

Any funds you can offer to help support this incredible hospital would be greatly appreciated!


Thank you for visiting my Children’s Champion fundraising page! While I train for the Blue Line I’m going the extra mile and raising money for the patients at Akron Children’s Hospital.

Akron Children’s is 100% dedicated to protecting, preserving and enriching every moment in a child’s life – from birth to graduation day. From wellness visits that keep sick days at bay to breakthrough procedures that make healthier futures possible, they’re devoted to the very best patient outcomes and to bringing more to every childhood.

Your gift gives our kids more of what matters. More smiles. More playtime. More belly laughs.

More childhood.

Thank you for your support!
