Earth Day Celebrated at Member Hospital in Maine

Every year, communities across the planet come together to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion and motivate people to take action for Earth Day. Children's hospitals are no exception as evidenced by the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center. This member Children's Miracle Network Hospital began recycling it’s food scraps in 2015 in partnership with We Compost It!, a composting company based in Maine.

The program involves the collection of organics includes food scraps generated in the preparation of food, leftover food that is not consumed by staff, visitors and patients as well as napkins, wooden stir sticks, etc. Since 2015, over 100 tons of leftover organics have been diverted from the waste stream and turned into organic compost

In celebration of Earth Day/Week, BBCH patients participated in a seed planting activity using the organic compost that The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center helped to produce.

Second Annual Miss America Serves Day Raises Funds for CMN Hospitals

On April 16th, Miss America contestants and volunteers joined forces and participated in the 2nd annual Miss America Serves day by taking part in community service activities all while collecting donations for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. We loved following #MissAmericaServes on social media to see the inspiring things happening in communities across the United States:

The Teddy Bear Ball was MORE than anything I could have ever imagined. To serve the kiddos at Children's today with these lovely ladies was a true honor. To visit little patients and their families, watch them light up and smile, get to know them, and hopefully help them feel better for at least today snuggling with a teddy bear by their side was the Teddy Bear Ball's mission all along. To actually live it today, and have such meaningful moments with kiddos undergoing cancer treatments, kiddos without family able to visit, kiddos who spend holidays in bed, and kiddos who don't feel well enough to go tonight as we all did was a humbling and blessed experience. Miss America Serves day was a true success, and I think we are all changed after today because of those little faces and hearts at Children's Hospital Colorado. Thank you to those who donated, those who shared our posts, those who supported this event, and all of the volunteers who went with us today. #MissAmericaServes #CO

Doctor Donates $10,000 to Patient's Miracle Challenge Fundraiser

Miracle Challenge is a 27-day wellness challenge that encourages participants to achieve fitness goals, while fundraising for kids in their Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Ambassadors of all types help participants stay on track each day. When Mason — our child ambassador for cycling — visited his doctor, Dr. Manish Saran surprised him with an incredible gift: a $10,000 donation towards Mason's Miracle Challenge goal.

"At a recent appointment Dr. Saran and Mason were discussing the appearances and events Mason has been doing with CMN and Miracle Challenge. During their discussion, Mason told Dr. Saran 'I am raising money for Miracle Challenge. Do you want to donate to me?' Dr. Saran responded 'Yes, I will donate $10,000 to you!' I was shocked and immediately started crying. Dr. Saran said he wanted to support Mason because he was such an incredible kid! I explained to Dr. Saran about Miracle Challenge sponsorships, etc. and he said he was not doing it for the publicity, but just to support Mason. Needless to say, I thanked Dr. Saran a million times and told him what a blessing having this donation was." -- Heather Bonnette, Mason's mom

Thanks, Dr. Saran, for making miracles for kids like Mason!

Miracle Dad Thanks Corner Store

In a message to Corner Store employees, Miracle Dad Bo introduces his daughter, Ryleigh, and thanks them for giving her a chance at life. Born 16 weeks premature and weighing only 1 pound, 11 ounces, Ryleigh spent 88 days in the neonatal intensive care unit at her CMN Hospital.

Now an energetic and imaginative 8-year-old, Ryleigh is doing well. Her mom describes her best as “just pure sunshine.”

From April 1 - April 30, Corner Store customers will be able to purchase a $1 or $5 Miracle Balloon, buy a glow bracelet or donate change to support sick and injured kids treated at the local CMN Hospital.

The child life department at his CMN Hospital, supported by donations, helped Grayson and his family cope with the emotional stress associated with his diagnoses and treatments.

Thousands of RE/MAX Agents Gather To Celebrate $9 Million Raised

Nearly 6,000 RE/MAX agents gathered in Las Vegas last week for the annual R4 convention. Among them, many agents who participate in the Miracle Home and Miracle Property programs and who contributed to the $9 million raised for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2015.

Representing the millions of CMN Hospitals patients RE/MAX supports each year was 10-year-old Camryn. Born six weeks premature, with a congenital heart defect and multiple orthopedic issues, she endured a dozen surgeries and was told she may never walk, talk or see. Today, Camryn is a walking, talking and country music-singing miracle.

Camryn was first introduced to R4 attendees at the opening general session hosted by Jay Leno. She blew kisses to the crowd during an interview with RE/MAX senior vice president, business alliances, Mike Reagan as she shared her inspiring story and thanked agents for support of CMN Hospitals.

Throughout the week, agents had multiple opportunities to interact with Camryn, make donations and learn more about supporting CMN Hospitals. Golfers purchased mulligans with donations at the Tee it Up for Kids Golf Tournament. Top RE/MAX donors were honored at a special breakfast with RE/MAX co-founder Gail Linger. Agents received training on a new Miracle System to streamline agent donations and honor cards through the Miracle Home and Miracle Property programs. Dillard’s featured Camryn and her mom in a spring fashion show and donated to CMN Hospitals a percentage of clothing sales. A live auction including celebrity meet and greets, vacation getaways and once-in-a-lifetime experiences also took place, raising $150,000 toward the RE/MAX 2016 fundraising goal.
