Miracle Weekend is just around the corner and we're so grateful to have Global BC on board again this year, broadcasting live from BC Children's Hospital 7 pm Saturday, June 4 through to 5:30 pm Sunday, June 5!

This special event gives us the opportunity to celebrate BC Children’s Hospital patients, families, caregivers, and doctors, and allows us time to celebrate the tremendous fundraising done throughout the year by dedicated companies, communities and business divisions.

We couldn’t do it without the help of the Global BC hosts who volunteer their time. Here's a glimpse at who will be attending:

Steve Darling

As co-anchor for British Columbia’s most watched morning newscast, Global News Morning, and a veteran to hosting Miracle Weekend, Steve Darling joins us again this year to celebrate the fantastic fundraising done for BC Children’s Hospital in the past year. Steve is also the Honorary Chair of the Ronald McDonald House, which is situated on the hospital grounds. Thanks for supporting us again this year, Steve!

Aaron McArthur

Aside from being a part of BC Children’s Hospital events through Global BC, Aaron McArthur has a personal connection to the hospital – his daughter, Addison, was the first infant in BC to receive a heart transplant! Joining us again this year, Aaron will be promoting the importance of organ donation and supporting Miracle Weekend on June 4 and 5.

Mark Madryga

A face we all know and love, Mark Madryga is Global BC's chief meteorologist and a huge supporter of BC Children's Hospital. We're thrilled to have him back at Miracle Weekend again this year.

Chris Gailus and Sophie Lui

Global News Hour at 6 co-anchors Chris Gailus and Sophie Lui are long-time friends of BC Children’s Hospital and get involved in several of our fundraising events throughout the year.
