There’s no better way to enjoy a cool treat while helping BC’s kids than on Miracle Treat Day! Every year, one day in the summer is selected as Miracle Treat Day (both in Canada and in the US), where proceeds from all Blizzards sold in BC are donated to local children’s hospitals with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. For us here the Fraser Valley and in Metro Vancouver, the funds go straight to BC Children’s Hospital.
Supporting this organization “hits home” for many of us in our communities – BC Children’s Hospital is British Columbia’s only full-service, pediatric acute care hospital and serves the one million children living in BC, and the Yukon as well. When a child in one of our provinces becomes seriously ill or injured, they are referred to the BC Children’s Hospital. Under the discretion of the BCCH, they are either treated at our facility here in Vancouver, or will be consulted by specialists from the hospital in their own home community.
Last year alone, the BC Children’s Hospital treated more than 86,000 children!
The stories of children and their families helped by the care and support of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are nothing short of inspirational. Every year, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals “Champion” is selected from each province; a child who has a story to tell about their own personal journey through health care to overcome an illness or injury, as well as the stories of their families.
Meet Colton, British Columbia’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals 2018 Champion:
Since 1992, RE/MAX has been a proud supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and regularly partner with the CMN Hospitals and Dairy Queen to participate in their annual Month of Miracles. They even made gift cards available for agents to pre-purchase to give as client gifts (and yes, you bet we supported this initiative!).
This year for Miracle Treat Day on Thursday, August 9th, we headed down to Willoughby’s Dairy Queen for a cool treat to show our support.
The verdict? Absolutely delicious! 👌🏻
If you missed Miracle Treat Day this year, don’t worry – you can still make a difference! You can donate to them here online, or phone in to the Foundation at 604-875-2444 or toll-free 1-888-663-3033.
But be sure you don’t miss the occasion next year – when you enjoy a Blizzard on Miracle Treat Day, the ice cream tastes even sweeter; knowing that your support helps give kids in our province the best health care imaginable.
