Meet our Phone Volunteers

In addition to incredible patient families and donors who will be attending Miracle Weekend, we have a spectacular line-up of volunteers on our phone panel.

The back row consists of Miracle Maker Panelists, who are committed to raising a minimum of $2,500 during their on air phone shift. In the front row we have special guests from the hospital making phone calls to Miracle Weekend donors  to thank them for making a gift to BC Children's.

These patients, patient family members, caregivers, hospital volunteers and researchers all have direct phone numbers you can call! Please feel free to give any one of these individuals a call to let them know what BC Children's Hospital means to you, and to make a donation during their on air shift.

Some panel highlights:

New this year, Family Support Program volunteers are joining us. These volunteers help care for the emotional and physical needs of parents and caregivers who find themselves facing challenges they never imagined. The program was born out of a recognized need for emotional support for families with children in BCCH, and a desire to provide local service to this vulnerable group in the community.

The Child & Family Research Institute, housed on the BC Children's campus, is the largest research institute of its kind in Western Canada. Money raised through Miracle Weekend supports researcher into childhood diseases such as diabetes, and cancer as well as numberous rare diseases. Collaboration between research and clinical care provides children treated here some of the highest survival rates among the world’s top pediatric centres.

Sunny Hill Health Centre, and the Infant Transport Team both have representatives attending this year and these teams are key partners in care at BC Children's Hospital.

We're excited to have such great representation from our hospital family.
