Re/Max Professionals and its sales associates and support staff officially became the first Re/Max franchise in Ontario-Atlantic Canada to donate $1 million to SickKids Foundation through Children’s Miracle Network. The company has championed the support of sick and injured youngsters and their families for nearly 20 years.
The brokerage, with 250 sales associates operating out of three offices in Toronto’s West End and Mississauga, has been a strong supporter of the CMN since its inception. Through the Miracle Home Program, sales associates donate a percentage of their earnings on the sale of each Miracle home. The money has been used to purchase medical equipment, upgrade facilities and help fund critical research, outreach programs and support services.
Linda Sansom, general manager of Re/Max Professionals, has been instrumental in the process for 18 years, encouraging new agents to participate in the program and those already involved to increase their donations. She has also arranged numerous fundraising events, including summer barbecues, raffles, 50/50 draws and dress-down Fridays to bolster contributions to SickKids.
