Help Alieya 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…

Since 2015 I have been a part of the Sporting Life 10k and this year will be no exception. Even though my family and I will no longer be able to run it down the streets of Toronto the most important part of the run continues, and that is the donations that go towards the kids who have cancer. Especially now, with everything that is going on, who isn't dreaming of a carefree and fun summer, which some of these kids have dreamed of for years. I run the 10k every year in honour of my late cousin Tanner and with the hopes that I have changed the life of a child if only for a day.


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!
