RE/MAX raises $7,211 for Children’s Hospital

Need hits close to home for Ladysmith area realtors

Gerry Beltgens Special to the Chronicle

When Cheri Mactier was going through her RE/MAX orientation in 2001 she was struck by how donations to Children’s Hospital had a big impact close to home.

“Local realtor and friend Kim Johannsen’s son was born with a heart defect that required surgery,” she said. “He was premature and only 10 days old when he was operated on at Children’s Hospital to repair his aorta. The surgery saved him and allowed him to live a normal life. Donating to this cause lets me feel that I am giving back to my community.”

In 2018 the realtors in the Ocean Pointe offices in Ladysmith and Chemainus raised and donated $7,211 to Children’s Hospital.

To be a part of the Children’s Miracle Network every realtor in the office needs to commit that a portion of each sale goes towards the cause. This commitment has allowed RE/MAX to raise $4.6 million dollars in 2018 alone and more than $73.9 million dollars since they started the partnership 27 years ago.

For realtors like Mactier being able to participate and celebrate the partnership with Children’s Hospital adds to the value of being a realtor in her community.
