Our story

Team #MightyMateja is ready to go! We're tying up our laces, training hard and getting ready for our #SL10k run! Please help us ensure that kids suffering from cancer can find some comfort in knowing that this summer they will be experiencing camp at it's fullest! Feel free to donate any amount to the team, or any individuals on the #MightyMateja team. This will be our 7th year running and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else this Mother's Day. The greatest gift I can receive as a mother is knowing that my #MightyMateja has been cured of cancer! Going on 8th year being cancer free our Mateja is being nothing but an 8 1/2 year old kid that loves dancing, hanging out with her sisters and friends, spending time cuddling with us, watching movies, swimming, and doing everything a typical 8 1/2 girl would do. Our daughter Mateja was diagnosed as having Neuroblastma at only 5 months old. It was through determination and her strength that we are able to celebrate her story. We run for her!


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 power 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 1,800 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!
