My Story...

Admittedly, I am not much of a runner.  I don't find it that fun, can't say I really know how to train properly, was cursed with little legs and no stride.  It just isn't a love of mine...

But what IS a love of mine is Camp Ooch & Trillium!!  That is why I am challenging myself to run 10km ten times between May 9th and May 30th.  

I will be running as a part of the Ooch/Trillium staff team - the hardest working, most committed, talented and coolest group of people I know!

So please support us!  Support our campers and their families and the incredible, life changing experiences that Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium are providing to them every day!

P.S.  Here is a photo of me last year getting ready to run the 10k in my Ooch Sweater and Trillium Hat.


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.
