How to raise money for BC Children’s Hospital?

Throw a Pirate Party!

For Kim Johannsen of Duncan, BC, his relationship with BC Children’s Hospital isn’t just business. It’s personal as well.

Kim’s son Erik was a cardiology patient at BC Children’s Hospital in 1999. Today, Erik continues with annual visits to the Hospital to monitor his heart function but otherwise he is a healthy, athletic 18-year-old.

In addition to Kim’s support of Children’s through the RE/MAX Miracle Home Program, the Johannsens recently raised $600 for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. To celebrate Kim’s 50th he held a pirate-themed party and the family asked his friends and extended family to donate ” dubloonies” to his pirate chest. Erik also raised $100 on his own through a garage sale.

RE/MAX agents believe in investing in the future of Canadian children. RE/MAX associates who display the Miracle Home sign rider on the property listed are committed to helping local hospitalized children. The RE/MAX associate has voluntarily pledged a portion of their income from the sale of that home to the Children’s Miracle Network and its 14 member hospitals closest to their community.

RE/MAX associates are very active in their communities and volunteer and hold fundraising events for the Children’s Miracle Network and countless other causes all year long. In fact, every August RE/MAX celebrates a Month of Miracles, whereby we especially thank our clients for helping us raise over $44 million in Canada to help over 2.6 million sick and injured children every year treated at a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital. All funds raised by participating RE/MAX associates are sent directly the children’s hospital.

Since 1992, RE/MAX associates in North America have collectively raised over $115 million for the Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals.
