Rockin’ on the Run, the London-based nonprofit raising money for pediatric brain tumors, hosted a record attendance at its sixth annual 5K Fun Walk/Run and Family Day, held May 16 at St. Patrick School.

As a result, the organization’s donation goal was met. Representatives recently presented a $17,500 check to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

This year the participants were split right in half in where they wanted their money to go, according to vice president Ashley Winebrenner.

Half of the proceeds, $8,750, was given toward brain tumor research and the other $8,750 to the hospital’s “fun fund.”

Next year’s date is May 21, 2016.
