Local Re/Max of the Battlefords Donation for Children

March 9th 2009

The RE/MAX - Children's Miracle Network affiliation began in 1986 when RE/MAX affiliates in Calgary, Alberta and the Quebec Region started raising funds for this worthy cause. In 1992, RE/MAX International adopted the Children's Miracle Network as its official corporate charity. To date Canadian RE/MAX Associates have collectively raised over $32 million for this worthy cause.


Since 1999 for every property purchased or sold through RE/MAX of the Battlefords from April 1st until June 30th the Sales Associates pledge a donation towards children's charities and to date have contributed over $10,000.00 to Battlefords Union Hospital and most recently in 2008 a cheque in the amount of $1,020.00 was presented to representatives of the Foundation. These funds will be allocated towards the enhancement of pediatric care at BUH. This year, 2009, RE/MAX of the Battlefords Agents have already contributed $737.50 to the Children's Health Foundation.

In Canada, RE/MAX continues to be a strong corporate contributor to the Children's Miracle Network - $4 million in 2008. With funds contributed by national sponsors like RE/MAX, affiliated hospitals are able to provide much needed medical care and equipment for more than 2.6 million Canadian children each year.
