For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Our story

Hi All, over the past years, I have participated in the Sporting Life 10 k to support Camp Ooch. Happily, there is going to be a 2020 run, but under vastly different circumstances. This year, in a very small effort to help others, the entire Wootton family (very originally named "Team Wootton") is going to participate. We have measured out a 10k route around our cottage and will complete the run on Mother's Day, May 10th. Team Wootton is registered on the Sporting Life 10k site and we would happily accept virtual honorary family members. Don't feel like running or walking?, well then, feel free to donate. Thanks to all in advance.


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!
