Help Lyndsay raise money

For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Help me raise money to send kids with cancer to #CampOoch through the #SL10K

My Story…

Thanks for visiting my page and for supporting me and Team Brookfield in the SL10K run for Camp Ooch. I have been involved with this incredible organization since 2015, when I first joined the Board of Directors of Camp Trillium. I now serve as a member of the Board of the combined Camp Ooch and Camp Trillium Organization. When we announced the closing of the merger between Camp Ooch and Camp Trillium in January of this year, we had no idea that the biggest challenge to face the newly-combined organization would be the COVID-19 pandemic. But kids and families affected by childhood cancer need the magic of camp more than ever right now, and the Ooch and Trillium team are rising to the challenge, working tirelessly to deliver programming that is fun, engaging, and most importantly, safe and accessible for families who are feeling especially vulnerable given the current environment. Hope to see you all soon around the (virtual) camp fire!


Kids affected by childhood cancer still need the chance to just be kids!

A diagnosis of childhood cancer is a big, scary, sudden swerve in the road, changing life in an instant. 

For affected families, it can feel like everything is about cancer. Simple, childhood joys like friendships, birthday parties, or sports teams are left behind in the need for medical appointments, hospital stays, and long absences from school.

For over 35 years, Camp Ooch has offered a different path–the healing powers of fun, friendship and self-confidence, and the joy of kids getting to just be kids! 

Often referred to as the social cure for cancer, Ooch provides programming at an overnight camp in Muskoka, at SickKids in Toronto, in specialized paediatric centres and in communities across Ontario. Camp Ooch is the only overnight camp in Canada to offer onsite IV chemotherapy and blood transfusions. 

Camp Ooch is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that relies exclusively on the generous support of fundraisers, corporate donors and individuals, like you.

Ooch changes the lives of over 1,900 kids affected by childhood cancer every year. However, almost 80% of kids with cancer in Ontario don’t have access to the wonders of camp. You can help change that.

Cancer changes a child's life.  So does Camp.  And so can you.

We still run for Ooch!
