My sons and I have been supporting Camp Ooch, and participating in the annual SL 10K run since 2008. We do this in memory of their mother, and my wife, Debbie who lost her battle with cancer in 2007. Debbie was a big believer in the value of summer camp for young people, and she would be delighted to see her boys take up this cause.
Because of your generous support the Scarlett Family has raised and donated over $500,000 to Ooch since 2008. And this year, like last, we will do our best to help this wonderful charity through a virtual event - a 10K run, or, in my case, a 50km bike ride (if my joints don't let me run!).
The needs are great, and never more so than during the Covid pandemic which has negatively affected fundraising for Camp Ooch. Please support our efforts by making a donation to Ooch in support of our efforts.
Thank you for your continued and generous support.
All the best for a happy and healthy 2021 - we hope you all stay safe and hope to see better times soon.
Sincere thanks from the entire Scarlett Family. Jamie Scarlett.
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.
