For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Our story

The 6th Annual Team Edyn 10k for Camp Ooch. Imagine, 6 years. Every year Michael, Simon and I are amazed of the support and love that pours into our team through each participant, each donor and, especially each and every memory we share of Edyn. Edyn Drever, Champion of Humanity was kinder than necessary, a dancing machine, a lover of life, a wise old soul, generous beyond giving, our sweet zen child. Knowing Edyn found a place at Camp Ooch, in those most difficult months, that allowed her to live her full self and inspire others, inspires us year after year in our charitable giving. Thank you for being part of Team Edyn and helping us to continue supporting Camp Ooch.

Description

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!
