My Story

Why I’m running and fundraising for Campfire Circle - My best friend had childhood cancer. We were born two days apart and our backyards were connected, so we grew up together.

I only have happy memories of our time as kids, playing dolls, dancing on the deck, ballet classes, but I’m sure that it wasn’t always easy for her.

I wonder how a camp like Campfire Circle would have made her summers happier, more carefree…and that’s why I’m fundraising and running. Thinking of my best friend Jacqueline and how much I think she would have loved camp as a kid and how happy she would be to know that other kids could have the chance to go.

For whatever way you can help, thank you.



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.
