Help Sheena 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…

As a Haem/Onc/BMT nurse at Sickkids for 30 years I have witnessed first hand what the children endure during their treatments. However, I have also witnessed the smiles and laughter the Camp Ooch team bring to them when they are in hospital. I also know they look forward to the annual camps which create lifelong memories and friends. Unfortunately, this year the camps and hospital visits are temporarily on hold due to COVID 19. However, Camp Ooch is managing to reach out to the children virtually and the camps and hospital fun will resume as soon as possible. For several years I have sponsored other folk to do this 10k run/walk. However, this year Andrew and I have decided to lace up our running shoes and participate for this amazing cause. I know these are difficult days for everyone but would appreciate any support you might be able to give. Please feel free to pass this message on to anyone who you think may help. Thank you for your consideration. Sheena


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!
