About

Open Heart Magic Charity Team runs to bring more magic to sick kids in hospitals during the critical time in their lives when they need it most.

Open Heart Magic (OHM) has pioneered an innovative way to reach children who are being treated for serious illness through the surprise, excitement and wonder of magic performed at their hospital bedside.

OHM currently has 72 Volunteer Hospital Magicians working in hospitals in the greater Chicago area, one-on-one with patients and their families creating magic, and teaching tricks to kids and their siblings. OHM Hospital Magicians provided over 5,700 one-on-one Bedside Magic performances to kids and their families in 2013.

Quite possibly, the best Charity Team in Chicago

Our goal is to see 10,000 kids a year by the end of 2015. And, with the help of our Charity Team athletes, this audacious goal will become a reality. Their courage, energy and dedication to the kids is inspiring.

Charity Team members do it for the kids, plain and simple. They run faster, push themselves harder and raise funds because of stories like this one:

"I am the mom of a 10 year old kid who was hospitalized this past fall undergoing a bone marrow transplant. I am writing you with the sad news that he passed away after almost 5 years battling cancer.

I wanted to reach out to you because Tuesdays were very special days for him at the hospital. He did look forward to the time when one of the Hospital Magicians would come to his room and teach him a new trick. He would even tell us, dad and mom, to leave the room so that we would not learn the tricks. It was almost magical to watch him redo the card tricks to us. You see, our son was a shy boy, but with magic tricks, he would just get confident, and perform. It was beautiful!"

Our runners and athletes have an opportunity to help Open Heart Magic create more stories like the one above. They understand how powerful their impact is.

Most importantly, are team members are superheroes who come from all walks of life. From serious Crossfit athletes & marathoners to first time-runners, they all make the choice to be awesome.
