Last year, RE/MAX raised a total of $974,000 for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation!
That’s almost the value of an entire house*, going towards purchasing equipment and funding research to help our sick children!
Can you help us top that this year? Miracle Weekend is fast approaching. Help us make a difference!
(* We are not asking you to donate your entire house towards sick children but much obliged if you do! 😉)
Miracle Weekend is the culmination of fundraising efforts throughout the year by literally hundreds of diverse groups. Events include everything from school fundraisers to golf tournaments to in-store customer campaigns. The hospital receives support from employee groups in financial services, retail, mining, technology, professional associations, construction and real estate, hospitality and restaurants, and others, and members of Children’s Hospital’s employee family. Annual events, such as Jeans DayTM, Slo-Pitch, RBC Run for the Kids, and the 98.5 The OCEAN (Victoria) radiothon contributed to the total.
Donations to Miracle Weekend are used to support the purchase of life-saving equipment, research into the treatment, prevention and cure of childhood diseases, recruitment and educational programs for caregivers, and programs in communities throughout the province. Miracle Weekend events have raised $280 million for the hospital since the first Miracle Weekend was held in 1988.
Commemorating 25 Years of Miracles
The Children’s Miracle Network is committed to raising money for children’s hospitals, awareness of children’s health issues, and for research.
I received a letter in the mail this week celebrating the 25th anniversary of when I decided to start making a difference. Through RE/MAX’s affiliation with the network, by donating money directly based on income, we have managed to raise over $64 million since 1992!
Received this beautiful pin today to remind us all of the miracles we have contributed to within the last 25 years, but also to remind everyone that there is always more to be done. Help our children today and make that commitment!

Matt and Leo had the incredible opportunity to participate in the 8th Annual RE/MAX European Convention in ROME!
Learning global RE/MAX best practices and connecting with REALTORS all around the world may not be a once in a lifetime experience, but certainly not one that comes every day!
The 8th European Convention, which took place in Rome last week, was once again a resounding success. More than 1,000 people from 38 countries came together in incredible spirits, ready to connect and make the most of the strong RE/MAX network.
In the vibrant Italian capital, we brought the RE/MAX Symphony of the Best to life – a symphony made of all the outstanding talents and individuals in our network. Together we created an amazing atmosphere, shared ideas, gained new inspiration and learned from industry leaders both from inside and outside the RE/MAX network.
We all left Rome on a high note and full of energy, taking new motivation and fresh ideas back home with us.
Thank you to our awesome clients for coming out to the Coquitlam Express game last week and for donating food. Was just able to pass off your donations to Share Food Bank. You guys are amazing!

Quick reminder that we will have free tickets for all home games of the Express – let us know if you would ever like to go for another.
