My Story...

As many of you know, I was very disappointed to learn that Camp Ooch was cancelled last summer.  I was sooo looking forward to being a counsellor while my own kids were at camp.  Alas, another summer is fast approaching, and it is still unclear what this will mean for camp.

As many of you also know, I am not much of a runner, but when this opportunity presented itself, I just had to take it, as it's a way in which I can still be involved with those kids, even if I can't be with them physically.

I am asking you to help me in this small way; don't worry, I'll do all the grunt work, but please join with me in making a difference for these kids!

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.
