The fun starts today! Join us for a 27-day wellness challenge that combines fitness with fundraising for kids like Alex.  

Alex was born with half a heart. Since his birth, he has suffered strokes, endured a heart transplant and has had surgery to remove a large abscess on his liver.


Through everything, Alex remains extremely positive. He will need to take medication for the rest of his life to ensure that his body doesn’t reject his new heart. These medications make it harder for his body to fight off illnesses, but his new heart makes a lot of things possible that weren’t possible before. Sign up and help kids like Alex:

.@REMAX #MonthofMiracles: Office celebrates with pancakes, balloon rides and VIP guest

Throughout August, we're celebrating RE/MAX Miracle Agents across North America who do year-round fundraising for local CMN Hospitals during the 5th annual Month of Miracles. Visit to find a Miracle Home or Miracle Agent in your community.

RE/MAX Eagle Rock in Loveland, Colorado, took a fun new step forward in their support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in August. For the RE/MAX Month of Miracles, the Miracle Office hosted their first client appreciation breakfast to raise funds for Children’s Hospital of Colorado.


Hungry guests enjoyed pancakes, tethered RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon rides, face painting and autographs from the local hockey team. And they didn’t think twice about filling up the donation jars or making a bid on silent auction items.


(Kids and families had a blast participating in various activities during the event)

Local Miracle Child and VIP, Ellory Hansen and her family joined in on the fun. Ellory was diagnosed with leukemia in 2013 and was treated at Children's Hospital of Colorado. A highlight of the day was watching Ellory run around with friends and giggle getting ready for a balloon ride!

With the help of event sponsors, First American Title, Primary Residential Mortgage and Site Logic Inspections, RE/MAX Eagle Rock was able to provide breakfast, a bounce house, “I’m a Miracle Maker” T-shirts for kids and much more. They’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
