On Valentine's Day, Nationwide Children's Hospital unveiled a multistory wallscape advertisement in downtown Columbus featuring seven local "miracle" children who have received treatment at the hospital. The 150-feet tall wallscape, on the Atlas Building on E. Long St., was donated by Nationwide Insurance and will be on view until fall.

The "Miracle 7" are:

Savanna Bartley, 7, from Pickerington (on the teeter-totter, right), received treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia;

Rylan Bell, 2, from Reynoldsburg (playing on the grass), who was born 19 weeks premature and weighed a pound;

Lucas Byers, 7, from Hilliard (on the monkey bars), who raised money from a lemonade stand as a way to thank the hospital for successful brain surgery on his sister Sophie;

Anna Hahn, 8, from Upper Arlington (on the teeter-totter), who received treatment for asthma and a collapsed lung;

Alison Hile, 10, from Hilliard (on the swing), cystic fibrosis;

PJ Lavette, 5, from Marion (on the swing), Type I diabetes;

Ian Sanchez, 5, from Washington Court House (on the slide), heart transplant;

Members of the community can help Nationwide Children's generate up to $100,000 through the Miracles At Play Kick-Off Challenge by signing up to support the movement. The goal of the Challenge is for 100,000 people to join the Miracles At Play. For the first 100,000 people to join, Wolfe Associates, Inc. will donate $1 per person to the hospital.

"Wolfe Associates, Inc. is proud to partner with Nationwide Children's Hospital as the presenting sponsor of the Miracles At Play Kick-Off Challenge," John F. Wolfe of Wolfe Associates, Inc., said at the unveiling. "We hope that the public will embrace the challenge and join the movement to support the hospital. We encourage other businesses to come online and join us in getting involved."
