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 about 60 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 were able to provide over 3,500 one-on-one Bedside Magic performances to kids and their families in 2012. Our goald for 2013 is 4,750 performances.
Our goal is to see 10,000 kids a year with in the next 3 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.
