THE STORY:

OPEN HEART MAGIC wrote -


YOU can help sick kids get their magic back! 

Hold up… does running 26.2 miles really help kids in the hospital?

You bet your sweet shoelaces! The funds raised by the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Team will help us recruit and train more Volunteer Hospital Magicians and purchase the supplies our volunteers need, including the ones given to each young patient as they learn to perform a trick of their very own.

Your fundraising will bring magic and smiles to thousands of children and their families, right when and where they need it the most.

1 week after you introduced us to Open Heart Magic on your donation page 3 years ago & we donated, an OHM Magician walked into my 6 year olds hospital room & changed an awful day. He made her an honorary magician & did what scared, exhausted parents can't at that point. She was so proud & finally smiled. Thank you for doing this! Please know that no matter how far you run or walk, you are a hero to many little ones & their parents. Thank you, Marie. 1 year ago
