Miles for Magic Chicago Marathon Runner Loses Proudly

Brian Adkins lost an astonishing 60 lbs. while training to run the Chicago Marathon for the Miles for Magic team. “Losing 60 lbs. changed my life. I was settling and could do a lot more in life,” said Adkins.  “I didn’t feel good about myself.  I’m 44 years old and I felt like, I’m middle-aged, it’s over.  I didn’t know how I could still grow and improve.”

Adkins draws inspiration from Open Heart Magic’s mission.   “They bring joy to kids.  Caring.  It’s hard enough to be a kid these days, let alone a sick kid in a hospital.  Open Heart Magic comes in and makes kids’ lives better.”
