I’m no expert when it comes to fashion, but I knew BuckeyeThon’s annual fashion show benefiting the kids of Nationwide Children’s Hospital would not require me to be one in order to have a great time supporting the kids. And I wasn’t wrong. 🙂
Striking a pose
When I participated in BuckeyeThon last year, I registered after the fashion show had happened, so since I was on the ball this year, I decided to check it out. Olivia, the vice president of Boo Radley, serves as our BuckeyeThon Team Captain and we went to the event together.
Each registered team & their captain was listed on the big screen! Betcha can’t find Boo Radley!
The event, held in the Archie Griffin Ballroom, featured styles from Homage, Fab’rik, and Pursuit, to name a few. Personally, I thought it was cool that the models were student leaders within the university, but the BuckeyeThon kids definitely made the event.
Yes, the cake was delicious.
Speaking of the BuckeyeThon kids, they stole the show, as usual. These kids are my favorite part of the whole BuckeyeThon experience because at such a young age they’ve already experienced so much. They battle health issues I can’t even begin to comprehend, and if an able-bodied 22 year old and her college friends can make a difference in their lives, I’m more than happy to stand and dance for 12 hours to bring them the care they need at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The final look
I’m no fashion critic so I’ll spare you any of that kind of review; however, the atmosphere of the room took me back to the excitement felt last February during the dance marathon. The joy these kids have and the energy they bring to us as college students is indescribable, and I am already so pumped for the actual event. (I need to raise some money for that first so if you would like to help my fundraising efforts you should visit

Overall, it was a fun way for BuckeyeThon to reveal this year’s goal of raising $2 million #ForTheKids. It’s definitely going to take some work, but if anyone should be able to do it, it’s Buckeye Nation. I’m excited to participate in this year’s event in February!
