Thank you very much for your support of the 2018 Mining for Miracles fundraising campaign. Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and companies, Mining for Miracles was able to present BC Children’s Hospital Foundation with a donation of $2,167,054 at Miracle Weekend on June 3, 2018.
This tremendous success is made possible by the generosity of hundreds of mining, exploration and development companies, service providers and suppliers across BC, Alberta, the Yukon and Northwest Territories, as well as employees, their friends and family.
Donations in support of Mining for Miracles were made through employee and corporate fundraising initiatives and events such as the Diamond Draw, Celebrity Pie Throw and Hooked-on-Miracles Fishing Tournament and Jeans Day™.
Funds raised in 2019 and 2020 will support BC Children’s Hospital’s Gut4Health program. The initiative will further microbiome research and the development of new therapies with the goal of making BC Children’s the first children’s hospital in Canada to use gut bacteria to predict, prevent and treat infections and chronic inflammation in kids.
Thank you for your support, your donations make a big difference in the lives of BC’s most seriously ill and injured children and their families.
