Last month, Motion Metrics proudly donated to the Teck Celebrity Pie Throw, one of the many events that took place during BC Mining Week. The Pie Throw is part of the Mining for Miracles campaign in support of the BC Children’s Hospital. This year’s event raised $1.15 million dollars!
Mining for Miracles has been the BC mining industry’s Charity of Choice for the past 25 years. In 2017 and 2018 Mining for Miracles will raise approximately $2.9 million dollars at numerous events around the province. The charity will donate the money to support the development of the TRAnsplantation and CEll therapy program (TRACE). TRACE will work towards providing children across British Columbia with personalized medicine using the patient’s own cells to prevent rejection of organ transplants, kill cancer cells, and fight infection.
The Teck Celebrity Pie Throw was just one of the many exciting events that took place during BC Mining Week. Taking place at numerous locations around the province every May, BC Mining Week is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the importance of one of British Columbia’s oldest and largest industries.
