As a proud partner of Children's Miracle Network, RE/MAX agents across Canada can donate funds and ensure their efforts support local hospitals in the communities they live and work, through the RE/MAX Miracle Home Program. This donation directly benefits the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation through this program, and the 100,000 kids and families who rely on the Alberta Children's Hospital each year by supporting state-of-the-art equipment, ground-breaking research and family-centered care programs.
"We are so grateful for this incredibly generous gift from Justin Havre and Associates that will benefit children and families in our community and beyond," says Liz Ballendine, Vice President, Development, Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. "Because of generous people like Justin and his team rallying around them, sick and injured children can receive the best care possible when they need it most."
Adds Havre: “As a fundraising partner with Children’s Miracle Network, we are proud that we can continue to make a difference in changing the health of kids of all ages in Alberta. It’s about making dreams come true, eradicating childhood disease and saving lives. We believe in advancing research and education that leads to the healthiest future for our kids.”
Legacy Place Society

Calgary Children’s Foundation
Calgary Children’s Foundation raises money for small children’s charities, especially challenged to be recognized without the means to mount large or sophisticated donation campaigns. “This organization helps at-risk kids living below or on the poverty line and who are falling through the cracks at an alarming rate. unable to get the help they need to overcome their mental, physical and financial challenges. We believe their simple and “larger than life” programs are helping Calgary kids find confidence in a better future.” Since 2014, the team has raised $66,000 for Calgary Children’s Foundation.
