Toronto – March 21, 2013
CTV’s etalk anchor Tanya Kim will be participating in the 2013 Sporting Life 10K on Sunday, May 12, 2013, which raises funds to send children battling cancer to Camp Oochigeas. The run will begin at the front of the Sporting Life store (2665 Yonge Street, Toronto) and end at Coronation Park near Prince’s Gate. Those interested in donating to this cause can visit: www.ooch.org/TanyaKim.
Relying on the generosity of its volunteers and donors, Camp Ooch works to ensure over 800 children are able to participate in the camp experience every year at no cost to their families, allowing kids to focus on who they are, instead of what they have.
Camp Ooch provides year-round programs for children affected by childhood cancer at their campsite in Muskoka, The Hospital for Sick Children and in the community. Camp Ooch offers Leadership programs where they take camp leaders affected by cancer on wilderness expeditions, enhancing their leadership and team building skills. As well, Campo Ooch offers programs within the city, such as Ooch Downtown and In-City, which teaches kids skills like cooking and baking.
“Camp Ooch is a great program that makes a big impact on the lives of children,” says Tanya Kim. “Each and every child deserves and fun life full of bright memories and that’s exactly what this camp offers.”
Tanya feels it is important to stay grounded and connected with the community she lives in. She is grateful for the endless support she has received and gladly shows her appreciation through her participation in a variety of charitable community events. As a philanthropist, Tanya actively helps with causes that are close to her heart which include the Ontario SPCA, Blessings in a Backpack, MusiCounts, CARE Canada and Free the Children’s We Day.
