POGO - Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario

Raise money for POGO - Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario

Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) works to ensure that everyone affected by childhood cancer has access to the best care and support. We partner to achieve an excellent childhood cancer care system for children, youth, their families, survivors and healthcare teams in Ontario and beyond. 

POGO champions childhood cancer care, and as the collective voice of this community, is the official advisor to Ontario’s Ministry of Health (the Ministry) on children’s cancer control and treatment. POGO is a non-profit organization with charitable status, here for kids with cancer, for now, for life.

Did you know?

  • There are over 4,000 families in Ontario with a child in cancer treatment or follow-up care each year
  • There are approximately 500 children and youth diagnosed with cancer in a pediatric cancer program in this province each year.
  • Nearly 20,000 children and youth in Ontario are survivors* of childhood cancer.
  • Cancer remains the most common cause of disease-related deaths among children in Ontario over the age of 1 year

Funds raised through the Scotiabank Marathon will provide financial assistance to families so they can pay for out-of-pocket costs associated with their child’s treatment; support survivors with customized academic and employment counselling when their disease or its treatment has left them with learning challenges; and fund promising research that examines the impact of childhood cancer and its treatment.
