Team Léo was proud to support ‪#‎MiracleNetwork‬ with the BC Children's Hospital Foundation this weekend! Thank you to those who shared their #MiracleMoment‬s. The event raised over $20,000 towards helping sick kids! Thank you community!

What is Miracle Weekend? Miracle Weekend is the culmination of fundraising efforts throughout the year by literally hundreds of diverse groups. Events include everything from school fundraisers to golf tournaments to in-store customer campaigns. The hospital receives support from employee groups in financial services, retail, mining, technology, professional associations, construction and real estate, hospitality and restaurants, and others, and members of Children’s Hospital’s employee family. Annual events, such as Jeans DayTM, Slo-Pitch, RBC Run for the Kids, and the 98.5 The OCEAN (Victoria) radiothon contributed to the total. Donations to 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. Miracle Weekend events have raised $280 million for the hospital since the first Miracle Weekend was held in 1988. You can still donate! Click here.
