Chris Chan

Chris is a Realtor with Regent Park Realty in Vancouver. He founded the Young Ambassadors Program which creates projects for youth across the Lower Mainland to volunteer and fundraise for BC Children’s Hospital.

Chan’s son was diagnosed with Leukemia at three years old. Seeing Children’s Hospital at work through his son’s recovery gave Chris an appreciation for the hospital’s need for help and funding. The charity has raised $700,000 in the past five years.

In addition to his work with the Young Ambassadors Program, Chris has served as a board member of the Chinese Miracle Weekend at the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. He’s also an avid blood donor and advocate for blood donation.

 

Jimi Brockett

Jimi is a Realtor with Dexter Associates Realty in Vancouver. He lost his son Ryder to brain cancer. During the treatment process, Brockett saw his community come to his aid and support his family through this tough time. As soon as he was in the position to give back he jumped at the opportunity.

Today, Brockett is the captain of one of the largest teams in the Ride to Conquer Cancer – Riders for Ryders. The team has raised over $2 million since 2009. Brockett also founded Foundation 33, a non-profit that's dedicated to helping families affected by cancer by just making them smile.
