ORGANIZER: OPEN HEART MAGIC

EVENT: 2016 Open Heart Magic Charity Team

EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016

THE STORY:

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:

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!

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!
