RISE for BC’s Kids
Saturday, June 12, 7-11 PM
on Global BC
For over 35 years, Miracle Weekend, an annual two-day celebration broadcast live on Global BC, has shared the extraordinary stories of kids, families, health care experts and supporters of BC Children’s Hospital. This year, we are excited to announce that we will be sharing all of this and more under a brand-new name and identity: RISE for BC’s Kids.
What you can expect
Like previous years, RISE for BC’s Kids will provide a unique glimpse into the world-leading care and research at BC Children’s Hospital, as well as the kids and families whose lives are forever transformed because of it. Similar to last year’s broadcast, the RISE broadcast will now air on a single evening in June, and is also being produced and aired virtually.
By tuning in this year, you will discover the newest ways that medical experts at BC Children’s are breaking through the barriers that exist in child health in areas like oncology and mental health—and be inspired by the courageous children and families who never stop in their fight against childhood illness.
When to tune in
RISE will air on Global BC on June 12, 2021 from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. We encourage you to mark your calendars and spread the word to your loved ones by sharing this page.
Fuel our quest to transform lives
As you tune in to RISE for BC’s Kids, you’ll learn about the ways that experts at BC Children’s Hospital never stop searching for answers that will improve the lives of sick and injured children. This quest isn’t easy—but as hard as it is to be the doctor, parent or loved one of an ill child, it’s even tougher to be that child. The fight to protect our children is one that every one of us might fight together.
That’s where monthly giving can make all the difference. When you become a monthly donor, you’re choosing to stand alongside us to never stop caring for kids who count on us. We have an ambitious goal to ensure that the work to solve the biggest challenges in children’s health can continue today, and tomorrow: 500 new monthly donors every month. Join us.
Double your impact
When you donate during RISE for BC’s Kids, you’ll make twice the impact for BC’s kids. That’s because our generous friends at Canadian Pacific (CP) are matching all donations made during the broadcast. CP’s matched funds will be directed toward the Children’s Heart Centre at BC Children’s Hospital—helping elevate care for kids and families battling heart disease.
Special thanks to our sponsors
While many strides have been made in improving children’s health care, we’ve only scratched the surface when it comes to taking on the biggest health threats facing our kids.Learn more
