At RE/MAX, we believe that serving the communities in which we live and work allows us to not only contribute to the well-being of our society, but to also be concerned about the outcome of that contribution. This dedication we call Premiere Community Citizenship. Our commitment as the exclusive real estate corporate sponsor for Children’s Miracle Network allows us the opportunity to expand the universal cause of caring for sick children.
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. Raising funds for hospitalized children, RE/MAX professionals to date have collectively contributed over $100 million to the cause.
In Canada, RE/MAX continues to be a strong corporate contributor to Children’s Miracle Network – $3.5 million in 2009. With funds contributed by national sponsors like RE/MAX, affiliated hospitals are able to provide needed medical care and equipment for more than 2.6 million Canadian children each year.
RE/MAX of Western Canada affiliates raise funds through community involvement such as the annual Children’s Miracle Network broadcast, pancake breakfasts, golf tournaments, ride-a-thons, walk-a-thons and a myriad of other events. But the cornerstone of our involvement is the Miracle Home® Program whereby the Sales Associate pledges a contribution derived from each transaction involving a RE/MAX Miracle Home®. 100% of their contribution helps sick and injured children from their community
RE/MAX chose the Children’s Miracle Network as its international charity because…
- The Mission Statement of Children’s Miracle Network, an international non-profit organization, is to “Generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals”. An outstanding cause!
- RE/MAX lists and sells homes with the very families whose children have been served, or may one day be served, by a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. One in four Canadian children will be treated in a Children’s Miracle Network hospital this year.
- RE/MAX stands for quality service and for caring about the communities where its Associates live and work. RE/MAX makes the world a better place to live through Premiere Community Citizenship.
