Help Emma 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…

Hi everyone, Thanks for visiting my page! This year I'm going to be running my first ever 10km in order to send kids who've been affected by cancer to camp! Camp Ooch helps kids affected by childhood cancer just be kids. Ooch has had such a major impact on my life as I started going there in 2016 a year after I was diagnosed with leukemia. Having cancer at such a young age and especially during high school where everyone is just trying to fit in was a very difficult time. Through going to camp I'd found a place where I could relate to people who'd gone through such a similar experience, especially at such a young age. Through Camp Ooch, I have grown as an individual, and have gained so many experiences there that I will forever cherish! I have met some of my best and closest friends through camp Ooch and I know they are always there for me, and I genuinely couldn't be more grateful. Any donation no matter how small would be greatly appreciated as everything helps! THANKS<3


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!
