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 60 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 3,500 one-on-one Bedside Magic performances to kids and their families in 2012.

Quite possibly, the best Charity Team in Chicago

Our goal is to see 10,000 kids in the next three years. 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 for:

  • A small girl in pediatrics with pneumonia making silks vanish into thin air.
  • A teenager with cancer changing red cards into blue cards.
  • A young boy with a heart problem laughing for the first time in days

Our runners and athletes 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.
