RE/MAX affiliates in Canada have proudly supported Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) and their member hospitals since 1992, with total funds raised surpassing $89 million and counting. With donations through the Miracle Home program and fundraising that takes place throughout the year, our affiliates continue to show their generosity. Recently, RE/MAX® affiliates participated in fundraising events at the 2022 Activate Canadian Conference in Quebec City, to raise more than a record-breaking $160,000 for CMN! RE/MAX agents and brokers gave generously through events that included a live auction, Flip for Kids Coin Toss, a 50/50 draw, and the RE/MAX Run for Kids. Proceeds directly supported CMN and its member hospitals. Read on to learn more about how RE/MAX gives to CMN.
Run for Kids (RR4K): Raising heart rates and cash
RE/MAX Run for Kids* is a healthy way to raise money for kids’ health at RE/MAX conferences. Founded in 2013 by Craig Pilgrim of RE/MAX Professionals, based in St. Albert, AB, the run has raised over $35,400. At this years’ Activate Conference, RE/MAX agents and brokers hit the streets of beautiful Quebec City to contribute close to $4,500.
Motorcycles for Miracles: The true meaning of travel rewards
This charitable initiative started by Bruce Johnson, of RE/MAX By the Bay based in Wasaga Beach, ON, is one that continues to get good mileage in more ways than one. To honour his daughter and support Children’s Miracle Network and its member hospitals, Bruce set out on his bike and rode over 73,000 kilometres across 15 countries. Since 2013, Motorcycle for Miracles has raised over $1,000,000 for CMN. That number along with the one on the odometer keeps climbing. This year’s Motorcycles for Miracles Champion Flag was auctioned off at 2022 Activate for a whopping $32,000! This current flag has travelled 10,000 km across Canada and has raised just over $265,000.
Spirit of Giving is Alive and Well at RE/MAX
RE/MAX agents and brokers attend real estate conferences such as Activate, to help them stay on top of their game. (Nobody in Canada sells more real estate than RE/MAX*). They also take the opportunity to participate in fundraising events to give back to the communities in which we work and live.
Moving Won’t Take a Miracle But it Might Cause One
Ready to sell your home and give back? Many RE/MAX agents choose to participate in the Miracle Home and Commercial Property Program, whereby a portion of their sales commission is donated to CMN.
