Help Katie Wheler raise money

For participating in 2022 Sporting Life 10K

My Story

Camp has always been about community. That’s why I’m fundraising for CAMPFIRE CIRCLE (formerly Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium), in support of kids affected by childhood cancer, and their families. I have amazing news to share! Camp-inspired experiences lost to childhood cancer and the pandemic, like fun, friendship and community, are roaring back to life, and they need us! Together, we can help kids and families access the healing through happiness that only CAMPFIRE CIRCLE can deliver. Join the circle and donate to my #SL10K—because we are the spark that makes CAMPIFRE CIRCLE burn bright!


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.
