10 years????!!! Really? How is that possible....wait, that means I will run my 100th km for Ooch this year! If you know me and how much I "love" running, that is saying something big about this incredible charity.
Ooch was there for us in a moment when we desperately needed something hopeful, a little joy, a few laughs. It far exceeded a few laughs - it has brought friendship, adventure, normalcy and peace of mind to our family, and many more families affected by childhood cancer.
Now Mother's Day in our family is synonymous with "Ooch Run" so whether we are gathering with our amazing Jack's Pack downtown or running in our neighbourhood with all of them in our hearts, I couldn't imagine a better way to spend my day.
Please consider supporting us in our run this year - 10k x10 years = 100% amazing!
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.
