For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Our story

On May 10th, 2020, Danforth Children's Dentistry will once again be participating in the Sporting Life 10K Run in support of Camp Oochigeas. This year we will be running in honour of Hunter Hoa, a sweet and vibrant 8-year-old boy. Hunter was a patient of our practice who suddenly passed away last September from anaplastic large cell lymphoma. We are sad that Hunter never experienced Camp Ooch, but hope we can help others like him find joy despite their diagnoses. We would be honoured if you would once again lend your support to this important cause on the 20th anniversary of this run. We can’t think of a better way to show kids that we are there for them – through thick and thin. Please join us in supporting them and 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!
