My Story

Many of you already know about Benjamin the Brave, and for those who don't, Benjamin is my niece Kaitlin and her husband Dave's, 4-year old son. Over the holidays Ben was diagnosed with LCH a rare form of cancer. It was, and continues to be, a whirlwind. Ben is in treatment at Sick Kids, once again I find myself beyond thankful for that incredible facility and the amazing people who work there. Ben has been fortunate to have experienced the joy of Campfire Circle while in treatment at Sick Kids. Ben's Mum wrote about it in one of her blog posts

If you are able, please consider donating to Campfire Circle and Benjamin the Brave. 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.
