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 more than twelve thousand sick kids each year. Thanks to the impressive dedication of athletes on our Charity Team, Hospital 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 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon has been canceled. Please click here for the official announcement from the Marathon and next steps for registered runners. If you joined Team OHM and have a question about deferring your entry, please reach out to Becky at [email protected].
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, we have a spot for you on the Charity Team.
