Help us raise money

For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Our story

We will be participating in the SL10k race to raise money for Camp Ooch! Join us and support this incredible organization that helps kids affected by childhood cancer to just be kids! Our dear Zoah was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma in Nov 2018. She went through 10 months of chemotherapy and 2 months of proton radiation treatment. After being in remission, sadly Zoah relapsed. She is currently going through intensive chemo and radiation. She went to Camp Ooch this past summer for 2 weeks and had the time of her life! Camp Ooch has welcomed our whole family and helped us get through incredibly hard times. At camp, Zoah was able to socialize with peers, try new things like canoeing, archery and gymnastics, and all the while experiencing a true sense of belonging. This experience helped her to build the confidence to start at a new school in the fall and thrive! Zoah is a bright, beautiful, compassionate, creative and spunky child! Please join us in saying "Thank you Camp Ooch!"


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!
