My Story...

I'm marking the end of a 2.5year journey with lymphoma with this virtual 10K run.  During my treatment, Camp Ooch has always been there; whether it was a knock on the door in the hospital, providing me an unforgettable experience at summer camp whilst having chemo, or providing opportunities for adventure and connecting with other cancer survivors, Camp Ooch was a lifeline.   Please support me in this celebration where I ring the bell in May and can raise funds for this amazing organization.  Thanks!

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.
