A message from the chair, Dan Whalley

Dan Whalley, 2018 Miracle Weekend ChairIt’s an extraordinary time at BC Children’s Hospital as we opened the doors to the Teck Acute Care Centre — the new facility on our campus — on October 29. With features like all private patient rooms, ample natural light and outdoor spaces, the latest technologies, and a more efficient design, the building will transform care for our patients and their loved ones.

As the team working tirelessly on Miracle Weekend every year, I hope you know that your efforts in funding urgent needs at the hospital have played a major role in launching this new era of care. From ensuring our patients have access to state-of-the-art equipment to supporting the progress our research institute has made in uncovering new treatments, you are helping us move pediatric healthcare to greater heights.

Thank you for being part of Miracle Weekend and for dedicating so much of your time and energy. As volunteers, you’re helping BC Children’s Hospital build strong connections to families, donors and corporations in our communities.

Thank you again for all that you do. I look forward to meeting with you throughout the year and to celebrating our success together on June 2 & 3, 2018.
