 Meet KinleyKinley is a 12-year-old cheerleader who likes peach rings and Wonder Woman and wants to grow up to be a flight nurse. In 2011, she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that required a difficult, but ultimately successful, bone marrow transplant. Ohio State’s BuckeyeThon, which aims to raise $2 million this year, helps kids just like Kinley.


Meet RyanThank you so much. My scholarship has allowed me to complete my dream of marching with TBDBITL. There’s no experience like it, and without you, that would not be a possibility.

Meet KarringtonBecause of my scholarship and being here at Ohio State, I’ve really been able to scratch the surface of maximizing my potential as a student, an athlete and as a person. It’s opened a lot of doors for me. I’m truly passionate about taking advantage of all of the opportunities and resources that Ohio State has for me.
