Camp Oochigeas is an incredible place, that brought my little cousin so much happiness and joy during her battle. The day Edyn left for camp, I was lucky enough to see her off, along with all the other kids joining her. The amount of love, excitement, and comfort that surrounded the volunteers and kids, made me so thankful that there was a place like this. A place for kids going through unimaginable treatments and heartache, to have a chance to feel like kids again. It’s an honour to walk with Team Edyn every year, and an honour to be apart of a camp that makes such a large impact in peoples lives.
Donations from you, will help kids like Edyn attend the best summer camp of their lives. Every cent is so greatly appreciated.
‘Deep in the heart of camp ooch jungle, you can hear team Edyn rumble!’
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.
