Help Mel raise money

For participating in Kitchener Kids with Cancer 2023



On September 16th, 2023 I’m lacing up and participating in the Kitchener Kids with Cancer Run / Walk to raise awareness and critical funds for a very important organization – The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario. (POGO) 

There are over 4,000 families in Ontario with a child in cancer treatment or follow-up care each year. More than 84% of children diagnosed with cancer in Ontario will survive, but many of these survivors will experience complications either due to the disease itself, complex surgical procedures, or the rigorous rounds of radiation and chemotherapy they were given during treatment.
Funds raised will provide:

  • financial assistance to families so they can pay for out-of-pocket costs associated with their child’s treatment
  • support survivors with customized school and work counselling when their disease or its treatment has left them with learning challenges
  • fund promising research that examines the impact of childhood cancer and its treatment.

Meet the Wynette’s and hear first hand how POGO supported them through their childhood cancer journey with their POGO clinic.
