There are several ways in which we fundraise for this remarkable charity.
At RE/MAX Mid-Island Realty, we believe in giving back as much as possible to the community that has given so much to us. We are truly grateful to live in such an incredible part of the world, with even more remarkable people, and it is our sincere pleasure to be able to give of ourselves to the community in any way we can. Our agents sit on community boards, volunteer thousands of hours throughout the community each year and give generously.

By wearing the #MiracleBand, you’re helping spread the message that local children’s hospitals rely on your support to provide life-saving care.
What is the Children’s Miracle Network?
- Help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals.
- Keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.
In 30 years, Children’s Miracle Network has raised $4.7 billion, most of it $1 at a time. But the need is ever-present. Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease.
Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals always have their doors open. Our Network includes 170 hospitals that provide world-class care for every patient.
RE/MAX Month Of Miracles
The RE/MAX Miracle Home Program allows our real estate professionals the opportunity to make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network on behalf of each home sold. At RE/MAX, we believe the difference we make when we help others in our community benefits us all.
We are proud of our 22 year partnership with Children’s Miracle Network. RE/MAX has designated August of each year to be the RE/MAX Month of Miracles. During the Month of Miracles consumers and agents alike will become familiar with the community contributions that RE/MAX makes through the Miracle Home Program. Over the past 20 years, RE/MAX agents have donated more than $52 million to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The connection between RE/MAX agents and their clients has helped to care for over 2.6 million children that will walk through the doors of a children’s hospital each year.
By choosing a RE/MAX agent that is part of the Miracle Home Program you are helping make miracles happen in the life of a child.
