Representatives from RE/MAX on Shallowford Road met with the staff at Children’s Hospital to present a check for $10,000 for their contribution and partnership to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 

The commitment of the RE/MAX family to CMN Hospitals demonstrates “the power of many makes a difference.” That is the true secret behind the RE/MAX relationship with CMN Hospitals. The individual donations of thousands of associates amount to millions of dollars each year for children’s hospitals, with $8.2 million raised in 2012.  Since 1992, RE/MAX associates and offices around the United States have raised $123 million through various fundraising initiatives to support CMN Hospitals. 

Local agents in the Chattanooga area participate in the Miracle Home program by donating a portion of each home sale to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, one of 170 nonprofit children’s hospitals affiliated with CMN Hospitals. 

“It was a pleasure to meet the RE/MAX team and thank them for their work not only making dreams come true for families purchasing homes but to also support Children’s Hospital and our mission to make sure children have the opportunity to live healthy lives and actually see their dreams come true,” said Rebecca Brinkley, Children’s Hospital Foundation and CMN Hospitals representative. 

Those interested in buying or selling a home, and helping local CMN Hospital in the process, can look for the Miracle Balloon logo when searching listings at www.remax.com.
