Partner efforts recognized during virtual celebration

During a virtual awards celebration in May, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals recognized some of its Richmond area partners with special awards.

Spirit Award – Costco has been a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner since 1988, raising nearly $500 million company-wide. Last year during the pandemic, Costco raised $35.5 million for CMN Hospitals across the country. Congratulations to the Glen Allen and Chesterfield Costco Warehouse teams for their efforts, which raised $79,646 – with just two locations!

Superhero Award – Panda Express has raised over $230,000 for Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU since the beginning of its partnership. Last year, Panda Express’ seven Richmond-area locations raised more than $57,000 for CHoR. Panda Express also donated 20,000 critical PPE to CHoR’s healthcare staff and delivered approximately 200 meals to frontline team members at VCU and CHoR.

Philanthropy Award – In 2020, RE/MAX Commonwealth agents donated over $45,000 to CHoR, more than any other year. Fifty RE/MAX Commonwealth agents participated in the Miracle Home Program, where agents donated after each closed transaction. RE/MAX agents have been raising funds for CHoR since 1994, donating $339,000.

Rockstar Award – Richard Mallory has been a long time supporter of Extra Life, a gaming event hosted by CMN Hospitals. Over the past two years, Richard has raised over $18,000 to support CHoR by hosting a tournament he calls “Squids 4 Kids.” Last year, Extra Life collected more than $58,000 from all of its gamer participants.
