Why We Ride

Tour for Kids is an important, sustainable source of funding for the incredible childhood cancer camp organizations in Ontario. Since 2004 Tour for Kids has raised and distributed more than $12 million to Camp Trillium, Camp Ooch and Camp Quality. Since camp is free to those in need, Tour for Kids funding means children with cancer and their families can take a break from their stresses, while enjoying a camp experience just like other kids. Please ask your friends, families, colleagues and clients to donate generously.

Meet the Macnamara Family. Our daughter Olivia was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma when she was 3 1/2 years old. She is now an active and healthy 11 year old.

How has camp affected our life? 
The most special thing about camp for us as parents is how it embraces the family. Olivia suffered physically during her treatment, but her siblings suffered as well. At diagnosis Olivia was 3 1/2, her siblings were 4 1/2 and 8 and their lives were turned upside down in an instant. During treatment we tried to keep things as normal as possible for them but Camp Trillium was one of the first places where they felt just as special as Olivia. There are no words to express my thanks for how much my children feel loved at camp. As parents it is also so important to have a safe place to bond with other families at all stages of treatment. As we are now on the other side it’s nice to feel like we can offer hope to families new to treatment.  Camp Trillium is a second home to us.  We just love it and all the staff and volunteers.

What aspects of Camp do you wish more people know about?
It’s hard to express how awesome Camp Trillium is without experiencing it. There is something for everyone. You can be active or crafty, get involved in group activities or just enjoy the peace and quiet. So special for the kids with cancer, but healing for the entire family.

Looking forward to see y’all next weekend!
