August the Month of Miracles

RE/MAX of Nanaimo cares about our Corporate Social Responsibility. One of the largest ways we do this is by assisting local and Canadian children that have been hospitalized during August, the Month of Miracles.

RE/MAX Miracle Home Program

The RE/MAX Miracle Home Program allows our real estate professionals the opportunity to make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network on behalf of each home sold. At RE/MAX of Nanaimo, we believe we can make a difference in our community. RE/MAX of Nanaimo is a Miracle Office. Meaning that 100% of the homes sold by RE/MAX of Nanaimo sales associates are helping local hospitalized children. RE/MAX of Nanaimo REALTORS® have voluntarily pledged a portion of their income from the sale of homes they sell to the Children’s Miracle Network helping the Children’s Hospital closest to our community. Fundraising throughout the year for the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) and celebrating in August with the Month of Miracles.

Month of Miracles

During the Month of Miracles consumers and REALTORS® alike will become familiar with the community contributions that RE/MAX makes through the Miracle Home Program. Every August we celebrate the Month of Miracles and thank our community for helping us raise over $52 million in Canada to help over 2.6 million sick and injured children every year treated at a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital. RE/MAX leads the way in real estate for Children’s Miracle Network fundraising bringing our international total to a landmark of $125 million.

Children’s Miracle Network

Our partnership spans 22 years with Children’s Miracle Network. The connection between RE/MAX of Nanaimo REALTORS® and their clients has helped to care for over 2.6 million children that will walk through the doors of a children’s hospital each year.

About Coast to Coast for Kids!

Brian Godfrey from RE/MAX of Nanaimo and his friend Bob Wilson will be taking on the challenge of riding from Coast to Coast to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital coming this Spring!

RE/MAX is going Coast to Coast for KIDS!

As a father of two (one daughter, one son), Brian and his wife Shirley were fortunate to never have their children visit BC Children’s Hospital. However, Brian and Shirley saw many of their friends require the services of the hospital and heard only great things about the care provided at the hospital. Brian began to feel a true connection to BCCH once he began working at RE/MAX of Nanaimo and became connected to the Children’s Miracle Network through his participation in the Miracle Home Program (a portion of each commission is donated to the Children’s Miracle Network which supports BC Children’s Hospital).

Helping children is part of the culture at RE/MAX

To date RE/MAX of Nanaimo REALTORS® have donated close to $500,000.00 to BC Children’s Hospital as a single office. Impressive.

Brian has decided to take three months off to ride across the continent! Together with his friend Bob Wilson, they will dip their wheels in the Pacific Ocean in Victoria on May 1, 2013 and will ride to St. Johns Newfoundland and dip their wheels in the Atlantic Ocean. This adventure will take Brian and Bob over 7300km on a route through Canada and the US. Brian and RE/MAX of Nanaimo has set a goal to raise $50,000 for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation- please support RE/MAX of Nanaimo and Brian in their fundraising efforts!

Let the adventure begin!

You can follow Brian and his journey on Facebook, we will be posting photos & his blogs. The goal is to reach $50,000!
