What's On

Grind For Kids

Grind For Kids is now in its sixth year and leverages the enthusiasm of thousands of people in the Lower Mainland who do the Grouse Grind on a regular basis. People sign up and ask friends, family and co-workers to pledge $1 or more for every Grind they complete by the end of the season (typically in September). This year Grind For Kids has the added support of Canadian Pacific (CP) and its CP Has Heart initiative, which will match every dollar raised. To register and for more information visit www.grindforkids.com.

CP Has Heart

In addition to Grind For Kids, you can also double the impact of your gift between now and August 23, 2015 – the last day of the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open LPGA tournament at the Vancouver Golf Club – if you donate online. CP will match online donations to BC Children’s Hospital with a contribution of an equal amount.

Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day

On Thursday, August 13, participating Dairy Queen locations in BC will hold their annual Miracle Treat Day. At least $1 from every Blizzard treat sold will be donated to BC Children’s Hospital. In 2014, Dairy Queen raised over $400,000 for the hospital.

Challenge Yourself

This fall, put your fitness first with the Miracle Challenge! For 27 days, starting September 1, people who sign up will receive daily challenges and fitness tips from expert coaches. Track your activity and fundraising accomplishments online to win some cool prizes. Funds raised through this Children’s Miracle Network initiative benefit BC Children’s Hospital. Register today or learn more at www.miraclechallenge.ca.

Tim Hortons Smile Cookies

From September 14-20, visit your local Tim Hortons and purchase a Smile Cookie for $1. Proceeds from participating Lower Mainland locations support BC Children’s Hospital. Tim Hortons and its customers have raised over $1.5 million for BC Children’s since 2002.

A Night of Miracles

The seventh annual A Night of Miracles gala takes place Saturday, November 7, at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel. This black-tie event will attract 400 guests in celebration of the South Asian community’s support for child health. Visit www.anightofmiracles.ca for more information.
