History and goals
The Children’s Miracle Network, founded in 1983 by Marie Osmond and her family, along with John Schneider, Mick Shannon and Joe Lake, has grown from a televised fundraiser in a small studio to one of North America’s top children’s charities. The organization has two primary goals:
Help as many kids as possible by raising money for children’s hospitals.
Keep the money in the community where it is raised to help local children.
In British Columbia, this means supporting the BC Children’s Hospital located in Vancouver BC. Whether the children are battling cancer, were born pre-maturely, or have suffered a traumatic injury, the doors at BC Children’s Hospital are always open.
How RE/MAX helps
RE/MAX offices, associates and agents around North America have been supporting the Children’s Miracle Network since 1992, raising in excess of $115 million dollars for member hospitals. They are active in their communities, volunteering and holding fundraisers every year. Offices all across the country take part in golf tournaments, galas and other client-related fundraisers to support their local children’s hospitals.
In addition, each August, RE/MAX celebrates a Month of Miracles where we thank our clients for helping to raise over $57 million across Canada. These funds help over 2.6 million sick or injured kids every year who are treated at a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital.
RE/MAX agents who display the Miracle Home sign on their listed properties are further committed to helping local children. Displaying this sign shows they have voluntarily pledged a portion of their income from the sale of the home to the Children’s Miracle Network and its 14 member hospitals nearest their community.
Why John supports CMN
At RE/MAX we believe in giving back to the communities that support our agents and businesses. We believe in investing in the children of our communities. We are extremely proud of our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network and look forward to continuing as one of the Children’s Miracle Networks’ largest supporters.
