Help Angelina 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…

I am fundraising for Camp Ooch to honour my Best Friend Forever (BFF), *C*. I met *C* last year at camp and although I haven't seen her since, I think about her everyday. The truth is, I never expected to come out of Camp with a new BFF - but in just one week this 11 year old changed my life. We spent a week exploring, playing and laughing. That week I saw her grow. I saw her challenge herself, face her fears and open up to others. She made new friends, learned new skills and made life changing memories. While at camp, *C* showed me the true meaning of perseverance and courage. Her ability to face obstacles with a positive attitude continues to inspire me on a daily basis. Despite everything that is going on in the world today, I am still running for Ooch because now, more than ever kids impacted by cancer need Camp Ooch. Please help me honour *C* by sending kids like her to camp!


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!
