‘BC Children’s Hospital is excited to host its 31st annual Miracle Weekend. Miracle Weekend is a two-day celebration, June 2-3, 2018, broadcast live on Global BC, that showcases the best of BC Children’s Hospital and celebrates the fundraising efforts undertaken by our community partners like RE/MAX throughout the year. Our RE/MAX agents will be leading the way as Miracle Makers, individually expanding their local fundraising programs and setting up a remote telethon program that allows you to continue to participate through their efforts. Please support them through their online giving pages and when they give you a call. Your donation helps equip the hospital with the tools designed for a child’s body, and fill it with experts who specialize in the care of children. It also enables us to conduct innovative research right here on campus, so that the discoveries of today can become the treatments of tomorrow.’
Please feel free to donate to my website miraclemaker.ca/IanLindsay or a local Children’s Hospital in your community across Canada. Stay tuned for more information.
