Whether striving for the go-ahead touchdown or defending the slimmest of leads, both are critical times in the game.
At two rival schools — The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan — critical decisions are made every day. Only this is not a game.
Care providers in the pediatric intensive care units of U-M’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and OSU’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital are there at crucial times for the most vulnerable patients. These children are battling cancer, heart disease, head trauma, pneumonia, diabetes, and many other illnesses.
Despite rivalries on the football field, physicians and researchers at Nationwide and Mott have been strong partners in advancing innovative research, novel clinical programs, and education of physicians and staff — all to improve care for children who are critically ill.
Between now and the end of the Michigan and Ohio State football game on Saturday, November 24, both institutions will be raising funds during the third annual Goal Line Challenge, a friendly competition to support our vital work.
