RE/MAX Supported Charities and Community Involvement
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
In 1992, RE/MAX became the official real estate sponsor for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). Since that time, RE/MAX has generated over $107 million in total contributions through the Miracle Home Program and various events sponsored by RE/MAX of New Jersey Offices and Associates. The Miracle Home Program, implemented in 1992, allows Associate to pledge a specific dollar amount from each transaction to be donated to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Each dollar raised through the program stays in the local community. In addition to the Miracle Home Program, RE/MAX Offices and Agents throughout the state of New Jersey sponsor charity events to benefit CMNH including golf outings, galas, RE/MAX hot air balloon rides and other fundraisers. Donations and contributions from RE/MAX Associates in Southern New Jersey benefit the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and donations from RE/MAX Associates in Central and Northern New Jersey benefit the Children's Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
In 2009, after six years as co-sponsor of the Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program, RE/MAX became a National Sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series. RE/MAX is proud to be the exclusive real estate sponsor of the Komen Race for the Cure® Series. The Komen Race for the Cure® is the largest series of 5k runs/fitness walks in the world, and proceeds help fund important breast cancer research as well as health initiatives at the local level. Together with its Affiliate Network, corporate partners and various donors, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure has invested more than $1.9 billion for research, education, screening and treatment since 1982.
Here in New Jersey, RE/MAX participates with two local affiliates during their races to continue to raise awareness and support for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The North Jersey Affiliate holds their race in the spring and the Central & South Jersey Affiliate holds their race in the fall. Seventy-five percent of the proceeds from these Race for the Cure series remain in the local community where the race is held, helping to support breast health education, cancer screening, and treatment programs.
