After testing different shirt colors we found that Charity Team runners not only look best in red, but they are also faster in red. And each step is to help kids!
The miles run and the funds raised by Open Heart Magic’s Charity Team inspire and support our Hospital Magicians in their efforts to reach thousands of sick kids each year. Thanks to the impressive dedication of athletes on our Charity Team, Bedside Magic™ is able to go where other programs don’t — to reach kids at critical moments in their treatment.
The Charity Team is critical to Open Heart Magic’s mission of bringing laughter and hope to kids in hospitals. And with our low fundraising requirements, team members find that fundraising’s a breeze. Whether team members are competing, training, fundraising or just spreading the word, they get lots of support from the Open Heart Magic community.
The city of Chicago provides a marathon experience like no other. Thousands of people line the streets of this great (and flat!) course to cheer on runners of all experience levels. If the Chicago Marathon is waiting to be crossed off your bucket list, join our team to guarantee your spot in this notoriously exclusive race.
From 5K runs to marathons, and bike races to triathlons, Charity Team members don’t need to finish first to be number one in our book. Team members have competed in 5Ks, 8Ks, Ironman races, CrossFit challenges, marathons, stair climbs, bike races and more. Whether you’re looking for a great reason to run or motivation to push yourself through another marathon, there’s room for you on the Charity Team.
