After a 4 year hiatus, I've decided to run the Chicago marathon again to raise money and awareness for a charity that benefits sick children. Being a father of 3, I wanted to focus on a charity that benefits all sick children rather than a charity specific to one illness.
The Open Heart Magic Charity Team's purpose is my chosen cause... to bring a little magic to sick children in hospitals during the critical time when they need it most.
Open Heart Magic 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.
Why this matters
With your help and financial support, my hard work will help bring magic and smiles to thousands of kids and their families at their hospital bedsides.
Why I'm running
For the kids, plain and simple. I know that when I run faster and push myself harder, I know I'm doing it for:
- A small girl in pediatrics with pneumonia making silks vanish into thin air.
- A teenager with cancer changing red cards into blue cards.
- A young boy with a heart problem laughing for the first time in days.
My goal is to raise $6,000 and I hope you'll make a fully tax-deductible donation to help me reach this goal. All funds raised will help bring a smile, a little laughter and a little escape from their daunting reality.
All online donations are completely secure.
Also, don’t forget to check with your company about matching donations!
