As a partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, RE/MAX, LLC has made a mark – an $8.2 million mark – in contributions to the nonprofit organization over the past year alone.
The partnership between RE/MAX and CMN Hospitals developed in 1992 and has grown continuously since. To date, RE/MAX agents have donated more than $128 million to help fund life-saving treatments with advanced medical equipment, cutting-edge research and continuing education.
“More than 20 years ago, we aligned with an organization that shared the same deeply rooted value of family,” says Gail Liniger, RE/MAX Co-Founder and Vice Chair. “The millions of families our agents have helped Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals reach is beyond what we ever imagined.”
RE/MAX has grown to be one of the leading real state franchise companies with nearly 90,000 agents and a global reach of more than 85 countries. To accommodate the interest in helping sick and injured children across the U.S. and Canada, the RE/MAX Miracle Home® program was launched in 1992. Later, a Miracle Property® program was established for RE/MAX Commercial Practitioners.
In 2011, Dave and Gail Liniger received the Children’s Miracle Network Founders Award. Only six other individuals had received the award, which recognizes North America’s greatest leaders, ranging from CMN Hospital board members and CEOs to fundraising experts.
Last year, RE/MAX and CMN Hospitals designated August as the RE/MAX Month of Miracles. While donations are made year-round, this particular month serves as a reminder to homebuyers and sellers that they can help make a difference too; participating RE/MAX agents will make a donation to CMN Hospitals for each home sold.
“RE/MAX Miracle Agents are exceptional because they incorporate the spirit of giving into each business transaction, raising funds year-round,” says John Lauck, President and CEO, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Our hospitals are benefiting tremendously from the $8.2 million raised in 2012, and we’re thrilled to start our 30th year on a high note.”
Earlier this month, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® announced a benchmark year reaching its 2012 goal of $300 million. With record-breaking contributions, a celebration was held at the CMN Hospitals headquarters in Salt Lake City. And, as promised a year ago, Lauck shaved his head in honor of the accomplishment. Overall, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® has raised $4.7 billion for children and their families.
