In total, the BC Children's Hospital Foundation broke the record by raising $18.4 MILLION for the BC Children's Hospital!! Here is an excerpt from the media release:
“Once again people from across British Columbia and the Yukon have made it clear that the health of our children is a priority,” said Raymond Li, BC Children’s Hospital Miracle Weekend chair. “Thousands of people work so hard all year to support BC Children’s Hospital. It’s an honour to witness that trust and commitment.”
“Our children benefit tremendously from the generosity and compassion demonstrated by people who contribute to Miracle Weekend events throughout the year,” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “It is incredibly moving to see so many donors, volunteers, families and medical staff share their stories during this weekend of celebration.”
Donations to the Miracle Weekend are used to support the purchase of life-saving equipment, research into the treatment, prevention and cure of childhood diseases, recruitment and educational programs for caregivers, and programs in communities throughout the province.
We want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our supporters for helping us make a difference in the lives of children all over the province.
