My Story

Donate, share and cut some hair!

If we reach our team goal of 30k, we will be buzzing some hair right off (mine included).

Many of you know our story and how amazing Camp Fire Circle was for Eliza during her time at Sickkids. We couldn’t have made it through some of those long days without them, but she’s not the only reason we run and why I’ve decided to cut my hair. I want to do it for the beautiful children whose light and legacy continues to shine on through the work of this foundation.

Harrison McKinnon’s  infectious laughter echoed loud throughout sickkids. During the McKinnon’s time at sickkids, the amazing volunteers and staff who are a part of camp fire circle, were able to shine a little creativity and fun on Harrison and his family, and their long days at the hospital. So, in honour of Harrison and his infectious smile and personality, we will continue to support camp fire circle and everything that they do for the children going through treatment. For our loved ones who have benefitted from this amazing camp and to those who may need to in the future.
Help us support camp fire circle!  brings laughter and joy to 1,500+ kids and families affected by childhood cancer. Year-round community, in-hospital, overnight, and virtual camp programs across Ontario deliver fun, friendship and a sense of community at any stage of a child’s cancer journey


Childhood cancer changes lives. So does camp. And so can you.

A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant. For kids and families, it can suddenly feel like everything is about cancer. Simple childhood joys like friendships, birthday parties, or sports teams being left behind in the need for medical appointments, hospital stays, and long absences from school. 


Whether it’s in a hospital setting, in the community, online or at overnight camp, CAMPFIRE CIRCLE* fills the void, creating safe spaces for kids to be kids, so families can be families, at no cost to them.


It’s where curiosity and confidence, bravery and acceptance come to play, and healing through happiness is on the agenda, every day, and in every way! Kids and families are never alone, because there’s always room for one more in the circle.


Your support of Sporting Life 10K ensures that CAMPFIRE CIRCLE’S programs continue to reach 1,700 kids and their families every year. Your gift will make life-changing experiences possible.

*Did you know that Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium merged in 2020, and that we have a new name? Announcing … CAMPFIRE CIRCLE! We aren’t changing what we do—we're just changing our name.
