My Story...

From the great outdoors to hospital floors—at camp or online—Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium is there for kids affected by childhood cancer and their families. I'm running in the Sporting Life Virtual 10k to make a difference in their lives—join me!


A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant. 

For affected kids and families, it can suddenly feel like everything is about cancer. Camp Ooch offers a hopeful journey, where kids with cancer can just be kids, and families connect with a community of strength and support when they need it the most. 

They are much more than a summer camp—they offer the social cure for childhood cancer. Their camp-inspired programs deliver fun, friendship, and community to 1,900 kids and 745 families year-round, all across Ontario. As a response to COVID-19, virtual camp and in-hospital programs continue to reach kids and families living in isolation, wherever they are.

Please consider making a donation to my fundraising efforts—your gift will make a world of difference!

Cancer changes a child’s life. So does camp. And so can you.
