RE/MAX affiliates are sold on giving and have showed compassion by raising over $72,000 during the “Miracle Makers Luncheon” in support of Children’s Miracle Network and its member hospitals. The event was held on February 9, 2013, during the RE/MAX of Western Canada’s 30th Annual Conference in Calgary, AB.
RE/MAX associates and business partners participated in a host of fundraising events such as the hockey tournament, live and silent auctions, including Tiffany & Company jewelry, a custom stained glass masterpiece, sports memorabilia and vacation packages to name a few. In addition to the annual fundraiser participating RE/MAX sales associates contribute a portion of their income throughout the year via the RE/MAX Miracle Home® Program, and host local fundraisers such as golf tournaments, head shaves and bowl-a-thons.
These combined efforts have enabled RE/MAX affiliates to donate over $4 million for Children’s Miracle Network 14 member hospitals across Canada in 2012, with Western Canadian affiliates leading the way by contributing $1.7 million to this total. Since 1992, Canada has donated over $48 million to the RE/MAX International total of over $122 million donated to Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals.
Children’s Miracle Network is an international non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals, health centres and foundations.
