DAY 8: Treats to fund treatments

RE/MAX Legends in Buford, Georgia made the most out of Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day. The office sponsored two hours during Miracle Treat Day at their local Dairy Queen, doubling Blizzard treat purchases during that time to benefit CMN Hospitals.

DAY 9: 5-month old saved by mechanical heart

Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City kept 5-month old Kaidence Stephenson alive before a donor heart was available, by using a Berlin Heart, a device that pumped Kaidence’s blood through her body externally.

Since 1992, RE/MAX affiliates have raised $157 million for 170 CMN Hospitals. To celebrate that achievement and this year’s Month of Miracles, headquarters employees visited patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, Colorado to make some young patients’ day and do some arts and crafts.
