Every summer I’m left in awe of the magic of Campfire Circle (formerly Camp Oochigeas and Camp Trillium), and all that they do to bring friendship, fun, and wonderful memories made in the great outdoors to deserving kids and families affected by childhood cancer.
Going on 7 years of volunteering, the week I spend up in Muskoka each August is one I cherish deeply. The chance to reconnect with great people, spend time on the lake, and be greeted each morning with sparkling eyes and bear hugs from tiny humans are just a few of the highlights. I couldn’t be prouder to support such an incredible organization in their cause.
I hope you’ll join me in lacing up for Campfire Circle through the #SL10K!
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.
