For children across the country, it is the memories made in the warm summer months that will keep them going all year long. Some attend camp, others vacation with family and some simply enjoy the time off, participating in endless summertime activities. While this is the reality for the majority of children, others are faced with the biggest challenges of their young lives. Each day, more than 4,900 children receive care at a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital meaning that instead of enjoying summer, counting down to the first day of school, they are undergoing treatment and overcoming obstacles most of us could never dream of.
Since 1992, RE/MAX Associates have been giving back to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through the sale of each home. All year long, offices and agents host events and come up with creative ways to give back. From golf tournaments to toy drives, there is nothing we love more than watching our agents show how much they care for the communities they live and work in.
August is Month of Miracles, which means this month there is even more reason for us to celebrate our partnership and kick our fundraising efforts into high gear. While we are encouraging all of our offices and agents to get involved this month, we don’t want you to have all the fun! Below are the two ways the RE/MAX INTEGRA, New England Regional Office is getting involved this August.
- Miracle Stories: If you have had the opportunity to visit a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital, you have experienced first hand that miracles truly do happen there everyday. At the beginning of each week, we will be sharing a story about a miracle child who has been treated at a participating hospital, so you can see where your contributions are going. Keep an eye out for these stories on our blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and share them with your audience to show how you give back to your community.
- Miracle Fun Days: As we mentioned, we don’t want you to have all the fun! Each Thursday beginning July 28th, the RE/MAX INTEGRA Regional Offices will be hosting weekly fundraising events to help support CMN. Below are a few hints to keep you guessing, but if you follow along on social media you will get a behind the scenes look at our involvement.
Across each of our regions, we will be collecting donations to help support those children and families affected by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Month of Miracles! At the end of the month, we will double our entire RE/MAX INTEGRA contribution! Be sure to follow along in our fundraising efforts on social media, and be sure to share your own journey by tagging us in your photos!
