WHL celebrates return of corporate sponsor RE/MAX with Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network
Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League is pleased to announce today that the longstanding corporate sponsorship with RE/MAX is being extended for the next three seasons. To celebrate the renewal of RE/MAX, the WHL unveiled a brand-new charitable initiative driven by RE/MAX, partnering with Paramount Global, the parent company of global kids & family brand Nickelodeon. This partnership is in support of Children’s Miracle Network – RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network.
Debuting in November 2022, RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network will bring to WHL arenas the fun, irreverent energy and characters of some of Nickelodeon’s most popular franchises, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, PAW Patrol (Produced by Spin Master Entertainment), and Blue’s Clues & You!, among others.
“RE/MAX is proud to continue our sponsorship of the WHL, and we are fortunate for this opportunity to continue our long-standing support for Children’s Miracle Network,” said Elton Ash, Executive Vice President of RE/MAX Canada. “Through initiatives such as RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network, we aim to give back to the communities in which we live and work, while highlighting the life-saving work that CMN hospitals do.”
In 17 Canadian markets, WHL Clubs will celebrate a Nickelodeon theme night, complete with special theme jerseys, branded creative, video content, music, and in-game activations. Funds raised through RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network will go towards supporting local children’s hospitals in Western Canada, including the BC Children’s Hospital, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Alberta Children’s Hospital, Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of Winnipeg.
“For over 30 years, RE/MAX has been an important partner of Children’s Miracle Network and I am always inspired by the new ways they find to support children’s healthcare and raise funds for local children’s hospital Foundations across Canada,” said Mark Hierlihy, President and CEO of Canada Children’s Hospital Foundations. “The RE/MAX presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network, done in partnership with the Western Hockey League, promises to be a fun and interactive event, and one that is going to raise critically needed funds to support children’s hospitals in Western Canada. I’d like to say thanks to all involved for putting this night together, and I hope it’s the first of many.”
The Children’s Miracle Network strives to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and research. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
RE/MAX has partnered with the Children’s Miracle Network for 30 years.
“In partnership with our longest standing corporate sponsor RE/MAX, the WHL is pleased to introduce RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network,” commented WHL Commissioner Ron Robison. “The opportunity to generate more support for the Children’s Miracle Network while delivering the energy and excitement of the Nickelodeon brand into WHL game nights is a perfect way to celebrate our longstanding WHL sponsorship with RE/MAX.”
