Help us raise money

For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Our story

2020 will mark the 5th year running for Camp OOCH. Each year we try to raise enough money to send a child with cancer to camp. We know the joy and peace Camp OOCH brings to parents who are desperate for their kid to find a place they belong, are safe and can have fun. This year will be virtual run with fundraising throughout the month of May. May combines a mix of emotions with both Mother's Day and Marlow's birthday. Having this run on Mother's Day helps me push through with purpose, focus and gratitude. This year Mike and I will be walking or running 5 km each day of May in honour of Marlow and all of her friends; living, fighting and surviving. On Mother's Day we will run the 10 km with pride and love for OOCH. If you are able to donate, thank you! If you are able to share, thank you! If you are able to simply cheer us on and celebrate Marlow...thank you! With love and hope.


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!
