Mining for Miracles Launches 2021 Campaign to Establish Cellular & Regenerative Medicine Centre

In 2021, Mining for Miracles will add to funds raised in 2020 toward their commitment to establishing the Cellular & Regenerative Medicine Centre (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. In the future, the CRMC may also be used to provide answers for the thousands of children living with other life-altering conditions, like diabetes, cancer, bowel disease, and epilepsy.

2020 Hooked on Miracles Notice of Cancellation

To our participants, sponsors and supporters:

Due to the increasing global severity of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, we have made the tough but necessary decision to cancel this year’s Hooked on Miracles Charity Fishing Tournament.

We know that the Mining and Mining Suppliers’ industry is facing a real challenging time during this pandemic, not only ensuring their employees are safe as we navigate through this uncharted territory, but also economically. It is important that all resources are aimed towards keeping our industry running, its workers safe and employed and helping the economy of British Columbia.

We are still very much committed to Mining for Miracles’ goal of raising $3.385 million for BC Children’s Hospital’s Cellular and Regenerative Medicine Center. Perhaps now more than ever we understand the need for cutting edge medical research.

We do hope that in 2021 we can welcome you back to Tofino for a weekend of fishing, networking, fun and fundraising.

Thank you again for your support of Hooked on Miracles and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Maintain your generous spirit and take care of each other.
