Mining for Miracles, the BC mining community’s long-standing fundraising campaign for BC Children’s Hospital, presented a cheque for $2 million at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Miracle Weekend on June 2, 2019.

 

In 2019, representatives from across the industry participated in Mining for Miracles signature fundraising initiatives and events, including Pie Throw, Diamond Draw, the Mining for Miracles Online Auction and the Hooked on Miracles Fishing Tournament.

 

Every year, volunteers from the mining community fundraise through Mining for Miracles to help improve the quality of health care for children in British Columbia. From helping provide new hope to kids with rare diseases to giving more children access to the power of personalized medicine, Mining for Miracles is helping to keep BC Children’s Hospital at the forefront of excellence in pediatric care.

 

“Supporting BC Children’s Hospital is part of the BC mining industry’s long history of working to strengthen communities across the province,” said Joanne Klein, co-chair, Mining for Miracles.

“For the past thirty years, volunteers from across the mining industry have raised more than $30 million for BC Children’s Hospital,” said Karla Mills, co-chair, Mining for Miracles. “We are proud to have raised $2 million in 2019 to support the development of the new Gut4Health Program.”

 

The funds Mining for Miracles has raised this year will support the Gut4Health program at BC Children’s Hospital. This 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.
