My Story...

This year I'll be taking on the challenge of running 10 x 10km in 21 days between May 9th & May 30th. I know... I don't really know why either but here we are! 

I'm taking on this challenge to raise money for Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium. Working for this organisation I see first hand how deserving the campers & families we serve truly are. They are among the most resilient, positive and welcoming people I've been lucky enough to meet. Every cent (penny) & dollar (pound) raised goes toward bringing fun to the lives of families affected by childhood cancer in Ontario. It goes toward offering these families quality time together as a family unit and bringing smiles to faces that are facing and have faced one of the hardest challenges. 

If you are able, please donate whatever you can or share this with your networks to further highlight the amazing work this organisation does. Stay tuned for run updates in May, it could make for "interesting" viewing! Thank you! 

Description

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.
