BENEFITING: OPEN HEART MAGIC
ORGANIZER: OPEN HEART MAGIC
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
I'm running the marathon in support of Open Heart Magic (OHM). OHM is an organization that trains volunteers who improve the experience of sick kids in hospitals through magic - performing and teaching magic to kids one at a time at their bedside. I volunteer at the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital, one of 10 hospitals in the Chicago area where we’ve got a program. We’re also at Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor and at the Cleveland Clinic in… Cleveland.
Coincidentally, OHM is also my employer. Talk about a conflict of interests! But let’s not get bogged down in what-ifs.
The money you'll help me to raise will support the 12-week training that each volunteer/magician has to pass before they can enter the hospital, and keep our magical supply closet well-stocked so we can see 10,000+ kids this year.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! As though bringing empowerment, levity, and laughter to a kid in a hospital weren’t enough—your donation to OHM through my fundraiser comes with the following additional incentives:
What You Get
No, that’s fine. I have this thing I need to, uh, I’ll just—is that the door?
I’ll write your name on my race-day shirt. You’re running the marathon, too!
Signed print from the “Dave’s Pain / Your Gain” series of photographs*, plus the above incentive.
I see what you did there. You still get the signed print and the name thing, you knucklehead.
Signed Collector’s Edition print from the “Dave’s Pain / Your Gain” series of photographs*, plus the above incentives.
2017 Calendar of exclusive photographs from the “Dave’s Pain / Your Gain” series*, plus the above incentives.
OHM SWAG. Think coozies, pint glasses, hats, maybe a shirt or two. Plus the above incentives.
I’m coming to visit! I’m staying at your place! I’ll cook you a meal and vacuum stuff! Have you been working out? You look fantastic!
*The “Dave’s Pain / Your Gain” series of photographs will cover the full gamut of my training for this marathon - everything from candid moments and early morning runs to never-before-seen pictures of me proactively taping my nipples on race day. You won’t want to miss it!
