Thank you to RE/MAX for year-round support
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our friends at RE/MAX for raising thousands of dollars to support the future of pediatric research and care for sick and injured kids at Nationwide Children’s through their yearly fundraisers like the Miracle Home and Honor Card programs. For both programs, agents designate a percentage of their home sales to the kids here at Nationwide Children’s, and kids everywhere. To spot one of our RE/MAX Miracle Agents or Miracle Offices, look for CMN Hospitals balloon sign riders on their property listings.
Thank you RE/MAX and their agents for making millions of miracles happen every day.
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month
Thank you. That doesn't quite say enough when we consider the significant impact that our generous volunteers have on the children and families that they serve here at Nationwide Children's Hospital. From the bottom of our hearts - we extend our deepest appreciation to all that you do to ease the hearts and minds of each patient, family member, and staff member with whom you come into contact. Over 1,370 adults and teens provided more than 50,000 service hours in 2014 - that is equal to 24 full-time employees! Click here to learn more about our volunteers and volunteering for the hospital.
