Yo man, can I get a scoop of that protein? I used my last 95 grams this morning.

There will probably be loads of people that can hook you up with just that at the first ever WELLFest. The Powell Grand Communities will host the one-day event with tons of fitness classes, personal training, a self-defense seminar, motivational speakers, and food. A signed football by Urban Meyer and free gym memberships will be up for wins during the raffle.

The fit party is put on by Brian Schottenstein and Nicki Meyer Dennis. Yes yes, Nicki Meyer as in Urban’s daughter. Schottenstein is the president of the Columbus-based Schottenstein Real Estate Group and Meyer Dennis is the director of AccellWell, a workplace wellness business in Worthington.

The FREE public event will kick off at 10am and wrap up around 3pm on August 27.

The Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon has announced the cancelation of its 2020 Marathon. Originally planned for Oct. 18, the marathon is the latest in a string of future events cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Board Chairman Dan Leit stated “The safety of our athletes, volunteers, first responders, team and the entire community is the top priority for our event.” 

The races Director Darris Blackford stated in a press release that “When you think about the best health and safety practices needed to help slow the spread of the virus, holding a major running footrace isn’t the responsible thing to do right now.”

Since its debut in 2012, the race has raised over $10 million for Nationwide Children's Hospitals patients and families. 

There is not yet an announcement on what form of fundraising event will take place instead, and athletes have been sent instructions for how to receive a refund for the event in the meantime.
