Open Heart Magic Charity Team runs to bring more magic to sick kids in hospitals during the critical time in their lives when they need it most.
Open Heart Magic (OHM) 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.
OHM currently has 40 Volunteer Hospital Magicians working in hospitals in the greater Chicago area, one-on-one with patients and their families creating magic, and teaching tricks to kids and their siblings. OHM Hospital Magicians will provide over 3,400 one-on-one Bedside Magic performances to kids and their families in 2012.
Our goal is to see 10,000 kids in the next several years. More than 60 runners will be running like clowns are chasing them in order to help us work towards that goal. We'd love to have you join us as well.
