Our CEO, Steven Krause, has been a Co-Chair for Mining for Miracles since 2019, the BC mining industry’s long-standing fundraising campaign for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. On January 28, 2021, Steven Krause, Premier Horgan, and other stakeholders launched the 2021 campaign in support of BC Children’s Hospital’s Cellular and Regenerative Medicine Centre (CRMC), the first of its kind in Western Canada.
“Mining for Miracles continues to demonstrate how the women and men working in the BC mining industry contribute to the strength and resilience of families and communities across our province,” said Premier Horgan. “Over the years their campaigns have raised over $33 million to support innovative health care initiatives at BC Children’s Hospital. This is just one of the many ways the resource industry makes our province stronger.”
This new campaign will add to the funds already raised in 2020 toward their commitment to establish the CRMC, a $3.385 million initiative. The CRMC will give clinicians at BC Children’s the tools to better understand the genetic cause of heart arrhythmias so they can provide the best possible care to children in BC. It will result in improved diagnoses, identification of optimal treatments, and potentially, cures—improving and saving the lives of children across the province and beyond.
The success of Mining for Miracles in funding initiatives like the CRMC depends on the generosity of individuals and corporations throughout British Columbia. Donations can be made through employee and corporate fundraising initiatives, or through fundraising events such as the annual Mining for Miracles Pie Throw.
