This season, Buckeye fans can directly help the patients and families at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center with their parking fee. For a donation of $20 per car, The Service Board at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center offers parking for every home football game at The Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza, 2050 Kenny Road.
Football parking is a major fundraiser for The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Service Board. Through its grant program, the parking proceeds support projects to improve the patient and visitor experience at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center. Annually, the Service Board awards more than $65,000 to department-initiated projects across the Medical Center.
The more than 2,800 cars parked at the Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza help raise more than $40,000 annually. The beneficiary of this year's fundraiser is Ohio State Wexner Medical Center's Jameson Crane Sport Medicine Institute. By supporting Ohio State Sports Medicine, you are supporting a team of experts focused on improving performance and on preventing and treating common injuries that affect the athlete in all of us — from the professional and collegiate level to the everyday athlete. Funds raised will fuel our research efforts to ensure that each patient receives a treatment plan built for their body, their injury and their sport.
The Service Board is a volunteer organization, established in 1985, that supports the patient care, education and research mission of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Through a variety of events and projects, the Service Board has raised more than $1 million.
