2020 OHM PERSONAL CHALLENGE
EVENT DATE: November 7, 2020
DEADLINE TO GIVE: December 1, 2020
Yep, I’m at it again – running a marathon to raise awareness and money for Open Heart Magic!
Last year we broke OHM’s record for dollars raised by an individual Charity Team member. Together, we brought in over $16,000 to help bring magic and smiles to thousands of children and their families, right when and where they need it the most. I couldn’t have been more proud or excited by all of the donations OHM received and the support I felt while I ran.
This year I wasn’t sure if I was going to fundraise and train with everything that's been going on, but knowing OHM needs it now more than ever, I decided to go for it again. Of course, the actual Chicago Marathon has been cancelled so I am now training to run 26.2 miles around my neighborhood. It may sound a little crazy, but when I think of the kids this helps get through not only the pandemic, but illnesses and hospital stays on top of everything else, I couldn’t imagine notrunning the marathon on behalf of OHM again.
I know this is a tough year to be asking for donations and I know that his may be a tough year for people to give. At the same time, the challenges of this year are exactly why great organizations like OHM need extra support. Whether your support is in the form of a donation, forwarding this to your circle of friends and social media contacts, or supporting me through my training and marathon, it is all very much appreciated!
Thank you for all your support!
