2012 celebrates my third consecutive year running the Chicago Marathon on Open Heart Magic’s (OHM) Miles for Magic Team and I’m formally kicking off this year’s fund raising campaign.
My contributors are eligible for a drawing to potentially win one (1) of two (2) Amazon Gift Cards, each valued at $50.00. If you’re able to help, click here for my individual fundraising page and more details.
OHM is a Chicago-based charity that trains, equips, and supports magicians such as the ones pictured above who entertain hospitalized children, often at their bedside. This year’s goal is to reach more than 3,000 children.
It takes tremendous courage for OHM’s magicians to go into hospitals and work with the kids, but there’s more of them onboard due to the kindness and generosity of those who supported me and other Miles for Magic Team runners in 2010 and 2011.
Thanks for caring, people truly do make a difference.
