We know and value the importance of having access to good hospitals, staffed with the best medical teams and where technology advances happen everyday. This is equally as important for our children. Working with many families is very much a part of a realtor's life and we often hear of various challenges and heartbreaks that these families have to face in dealing and coping with their children's health issues.
Miracles happen everyday at BC Children's Hospital! Read Colton's story.
Blessed with good health and privileged to live in such a beautiful place as the Okanagan Valley, enjoying this wonderful, enviable lifestyle, we decided to do something to make a difference in the lives of so many. So in 2006 we spearheaded, organized and participated in a RE/MAX bike-a-thon to raise money for BC Children's Hospital. Riding on the event's success, we decided to make it an annual event (with the exception of 2009 due to the severe forest fires) and to-date, have raised over $145,000 for sick and injured children.
In 2011, we changed gears and location! We laid downthe bicycles and got on our motorbikes instead. It was an exciting and fun filled, two day event. Started in Vernon and traveled through some of the most spectacular scenery in BC to the Kootenays.
This success of this event would not be possible if not for our dedicated RE/MAX Realtors and friends who rode on behalf of children and families in their respective communities. Thank you all for your passion, dedication and loyalty to the charity. We are honoured and grateful to have them on our spokes for kids team. So a big THANK YOU to Leo Bruneau and Wayne Dick from RE/MAX All Points Realty, Coquitlam; Jesse East, RE/MAX Kelowna, Gerald Teichroeb from RE/MAX Kamloops Realty, Rowen Grant of RTown Media, Whistler, Stephen Phillips, Vernon, Bryon and Sue Brandle of RE/MAX Vernon and to our entire Heidi Lussi Real Estate Team!
