THE STORY:

Be a Hero for Kids! Choose any event as a Personal Challenge. Change lives! 

Your hard work will help bring magic and smiles to thousands of kids and their families at their bedsides and help grow programs at ten hospitals in the Chicago area in 2016.The funds raised by the Charity Team will fund expansion to new hospital partners and allow for significant growth – which means we get to see more kids. The Charity Team is one of the main reasons we were able to reach over 9,400 kids one-on-one at their bedside in 2014. Your participation will have a huge impact.

Our runners and athletes come from all walks of life. From serious Crossfit athletes & marathoners to first time runners who want to run for charity, they all make the choice to be awesome.

When you join the team and run for charity, your efforts will help kids and their families at the following hospitals:

  • Advocate Children’s Hospital – Oak Lawn
  • Advocate Children’s Hospital – Park Ridge
  • Alexian Brothers Women’s and Children’s Hospital
  • Central DuPage Hospital
  • Lurie’s Children’s Hospital
  • Northwest Community Hospital
  • NorthShore Evanston Hospital
  • Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago
  • Rush University Medical Center
  • University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital

About OHM

Open Heart Magic 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.

Our personalized interactions help children feel special, more confident and empowered during a scary and stressful time. By inviting them to be a part of the interaction, we energize kids and help them find the strength they need to heal. Because our Bedside Magic performances are one-on-one, we’re able to work with kids of all ages, regardless of physical or developmental restrictions. Our performances benefit the parents and siblings of these patients who are experiencing stress as well.

Open Heart Magic has seen incredible growth since it’s inception in 2004. The community of rock star volunteer magicians has grown drastically. In 2012 there were 38 magicians. And beginning in 2016, there are 120 magicians changing the hospital experience across Chicago.
