CARSTAR Joins Nationwide to Sponsor Children’s Championship in Ohio

CARSTAR, North America’s premier network of independently owned collision repair facilities, joined the team from Nationwide Insurance to sponsor the Nationwide Children’s Championship -- the annual fundraiser for Nationwide Children’s Hospital Pediatric Cancer Program.


At the kickoff dinner, the group came together to provide $1.25 million dollars for cancer research and treatment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. The official golf tournament the next day began with the ceremonial first shot to fight cancer. A patient champion is selected and this year the champion was Alea Ramsey.


“What a tremendous program to help support cancer research and treatment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital,” said Arlo Johnson, general manager of CARSTAR U.S. “Nationwide has long been an insurance partner with CARSTAR, and we’re proud to participate in this event to benefit children in need.”


Since 2007, the Nationwide Children's Championship has raised more than $7.3 million for patients and families specifically in the Nationwide Children's Hospital Pediatric Cancer Program. This year's tournament took place Aug. 12-18, 2019 at the Ohio State University Scarlet Golf Course.
