Two remarkable groups that just reached monumental milestones
One of the reasons BC Children’s Hospital has been able to make so much progress over the years is because of the continued support of donors. Here are two remarkable groups that just reached monumental milestones.
Mining for Miracles
Mining for Miracles, the BC mining community’s fundraising campaign in support of BC Children’s Hospital, has helped bring about extraordinary progress. Since its inception in 1988, Mining for Miracles has raised a remarkable $30-million to help transform health care for kids in BC and the Yukon.
They’ve done that in a variety of ways—including employee and corporate fundraising and events like Jeans Day™, Diamond Draw, the Hooked on Miracles fishing tournament, and the Teck Celebrity Pie Throw. From ensuring BC Children’s has access to the most advanced equipment and technologies, to helping researchers pursue new discoveries, the impact on children and families has been profound.
Balding for Dollars
Created in 2000 to support kids with cancer and blood disorders, Balding for Dollars reached a whopping $5-million in total funds raised this May. From helping ease the financial toll an illness takes on families to supporting ground-breaking research initiatives, this support has made an incredible difference in the lives of so many oncology patients and families.
