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!

Happy Canada Day! We enjoyed some incredible celebrations yesterday at Town Centre Park, Castle Park, and Rocky Point Park!
In case you could not make it to 20 incredible minutes of fireworks accompanied by a very tasteful soundtrack, here’s a 90 second snippet I was able to grab. The magnificence of fireworks exploding almost directly overhead is not something that can be captured on film.
Here are a few things to do this weekend to celebrate our beautiful country!
Visit the Coquitlam Farmer’s Market!There will be lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, amazing prepared foods, baked goods and food trucks! Come hungry and check out Cheese Street Grill, Truly Authentic Taste of Malaysia and Rocky Point Ice Cream! We’re excited to be welcoming The Land of Deborah to market as our musician this week.
