This year, in a moment of weakness or moment of overconfidence (not sure which one), I decided to try and sign up to run the marathon one more time. Unfortunately, I failed to get into Berlin, NY, and Chicago. A friend of mine recommended me to run for a charity. I wasn't sure which one to run for. There are a lot! When I stumbled upon Open Heart Magin, it was an easy decision. They can write what they do better than me so see below.
I set some pretty ambitious goals this year (3 hours) and I am at that point in my training where I hate my life. I figure I don't mind if I let myself down but it will be much harder to let all my friends, family, and co-workers down. So please help me get over the finish line. Can use all the help I can get!!
No hard feelings if this isn't for you.
Thanks and love you guys.

YOU can help sick kids get their magic back!
Hold up… does running 26.2 miles really help kids in the hospital?
You bet your sweet shoelaces! The funds raised by the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Team will help us recruit and train more Volunteer Hospital Magicians and purchase the supplies our volunteers need, including the ones given to each young patient as they learn to perform a trick of their very own. Your fundraising will bring magic and smiles to thousands of children and their families, right when and where they need it the most.
