Help Colin 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…

We are raising money for Rockstars Sophia and Evie to go to Camp Ooch. Rockstar Sophia … Twelve year old Sophia has been back home in Timmins for two years since leaving SickKids Hospital where she had undergone 8 months of intensive treatment for multiple forms of leukemia. She continues to thrive, enjoying school, swimming and skiing, reading, drawing and having fun with her friends. Rockstar Evie … It's been an interesting year for Evie! She started 4th grade, joined a Children's Choir and is levelling up in her swimming lessons! On the medical front, she continues to take medication every morning before school which seems to be doing an ok job keeping her tumour stable - which is exactly what we want!


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!
