Miracle Millions Campaign for B.C. Children’s Hospital

Since 1990 we have been helping BC Children’s Hospital to give countless children the ultimate gift: a bright future.

Over the years, with the help of BC Hydro, employees, family, and friends, the Power Pioneers have established a legacy of giving that continues today.

Power Pioneers marked two major milestones: in 2015 we raised our first $1 million for BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH): in 2023 we reached our goal of $1 million for our Ed Turner Memorial Endowment for Medical Genetics Research. The Endowment Fund is part of our combined Miracle Millions total that is currently over $1.7 million and we continue to work towards our second million.

Guaranteeing a healthy future for B.C.’s children

The BC Hydro Power Pioneers Ed Turner Memorial Endowment for Medical Genetics at BC Children’s Hospital provides a reliable source of income, ensuring B.C.’s children and families will continue to have access to an invaluable and trusted resource. Ed Turner was a founding member of the Power Pioneers and always believed in leaving things better than you found them. He worked hard to establish the Endowment Fund knowing it would be a legacy for the children and families of B.C. for generations to come. Our vision in creating this endowment has helped make the delivery of exceptional child health care in B.C. possible – care that ranks among the best in the world. Funding generated from our endowment helps researchers devoted to medical genetics, whose persistent study of rare diseases, often leads to findings and diagnoses that ultimately result in insights into other more common illnesses.
