MetCon for a Cause with Coach Leanna

MetCon for a Cause with Coach Leanna

This month's MetCon for a Cause is to benefit Nationwide Children's Heart Center. Coach Leanna is not only competing in the Nationwide Children's Columbus Half Marathon, but also taking an active role to fundraise for a department that is very near to her heart. Coach Leanna chose this cause because when her sister was born, she had a heart condition that required surgery. If it wasn't for the amazing people and the resources at that hospital, her sister likely wouldn't have made it. Though it was a different hospital, Leanna wants to make a difference right here in our Columbus community so that other families have the chance to help the most precious members of their families.

WHAT IS SPOT TOTS?
