Raise money for Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario

ALL PLEDGES DONATED TO:  Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario


My name is Jodi Rosner. I am a Pediatrician in Kitchener Waterloo and the Founder for the Kitchener Kids with Cancer Run. This annual event raises money to support childhood cancer through an organization called POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario). I am proud to say this will be our 7th year organizing a fun, safe and healthy athletic event for Waterloo Region and beyond, that is aimed to provide local multilevel supports to families fighting childhood cancer. As a pediatrician, caring for children with cancer, I see first hand how this horrible disease affects not just the child but the whole family. Families lives are put on hold, jobs are lost, family incomes are drastically decreased, and school years are lost. These wonderful and inspirational children, however, go on fighting and thanks to all the treatment research (supported by POGO), we have great success rates.

POGO provides financial assistance to families, interlink nursing and research into new therapies. POGO also has a satellite clinic at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, and other community hospitals across Ontario, so that our children can receive cancer treatment and medical management closer to home. POGO works to ensure that everyone affected by childhood cancer has access to the best care and support. POGO is a non-profit organization with charitable status, here for kids with cancer, for now, for life.

As we prepare for our 7th year  we are asking for your help. Together we have raised over $325,000 so far and we continue to be one of the top fundraisers for POGO.  What an amazing way to support these young children and their families with the fight of their life. We need your help to make this race a success. Please consider sponsoring this event.

The kids and I thank you for your support.

Jodi Rosner BSc, MD, FRCPC
