I chose to raise money for Open Heart Magic becuase they are a small, local charity that will use all of the money towards making sick kids in our community a little bit happier. Their organization recruits and trains volunteer magicians and provides the necessary supplies for them to entertain kids in the hospital, and teach them each a magic trick of their own. It sounds like a small act, but it makes a huge difference for each of the children and their families. And the fact that they are a smaller charity means you don't have to make a large to donation to have a big impact! Every donation makes a difference.
***UPDATE: Now that I have moved to Virginia I will be running the Richmond half marathon on 11/10 instead of the Chicago marathon.
Thanks for checking out my page and for your support!
