Month of Miracles for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) has come to an end, and like previous years, our network’s generosity and commitment is something to shout from the rooftops. As of 2017, the average RE/MAX Agent contributes $441 per year to CMN and in Canada alone, our dedicated agents have helped raise over $70 million through various initiatives.
Deeply ingrained in the RE/MAX Organization is a commitment to the communities we live and work in. We’re proud to celebrate our 26+ year partnership with CMN. With every dollar raised, your contributions make it clear that our network of Brokers and Agents go “above the crowd” to make a difference. Our dedication to giving back is a key part of who we are.
The best way to wrap up the Month of Miracles is to share and celebrate all of the inspiring work our network does.
Bruce Johnson and the Motorcycle for Miracles “Ends of the Earth Ride”
RE/MAX of Wasaga Beach Inc., Brokerage Agent Bruce Johnson and his family are the definition of inspiration. Bruce and his daughter Holly set off on a Motorcycle for Miracles fundraising ride of epic proportions. Starting in August 2018 during our Month of Miracles for CMN hospitals, Bruce and Holly also kicked off their journey at RE/MAX INTEGRA at the CMN Carnival Fundraiser! The duo began their 28,000 kilometre “Ends of the Earth Ride” from the Arctic village of Tuktoyuktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada to Ushuaia, Argentina the southernmost town in the world. This self-supported ride will take six months and every dollar raised along the way will go to local children’s hospitals’ highest priority needs. Donate today for CMN!
