Mining for Miracles – BC’s Mining Industry Charity of Choice
In 1988, a committee of mining industry executives and personnel formed Mining for Miracles to raise money for BC Children’s Hospital. Today, Mining for Miracles is an outstanding example of how BC’s Mining Industry has made, and continues to be dedicated to, an enormous positive impact on health & welfare of children, families and communities across BC.
Since 1988 Mining for Miracles has raised over $34 million for high needs and high impact areas of BC Children’s Hospital.
The industry’s giving to BC Children’s Hospital comes from the heart. Employees, contractors, bankers & lenders, suppliers, mining executives, law & accounting firms, industry consultants, families and friends of the mining industry get together and give to BC Children’s so that researchers, doctors, nurses, clinicians, and caregivers can help our children to recover from injury and illness and succeed in life.
Operating rooms designed for children, advanced medical imaging equipment, medical simulation technology and procedures, and infectious disease laboratories are all areas of BC Children’s Hospital partly or completely funded by Mining for Miracle campaigns. Each funded area of the hospital has increased the likelihood of a successful treatment for illness and injury, has reduced the recovery time of patients, has increased the knowledge and capabilities of caregivers, while reducing the cost of providing world class healthcare to our children.
