About POGO

The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) champions childhood cancer care. When a child is battling cancer, we ensure that the child has lifelong access to the best care for the best possible outcomes.

We provide that child’s family with financial support to help ease the burden. We commit to their ongoing care, knowing that childhood cancer survivors endure medical challenges into adulthood. We advance cancer care for all children with cancer through our pioneering database and research. POGO leads a unique and impactful pediatric cancer network that is a model for Canada and the world.

#ChampionChildhoodCancerCare is an opportunity for people who want to join the fight against pediatric cancer by hosting a community, school or workplace fundraising event. The current pandemic has changed the way we can come together physically but offers new opportunities to connect and raise funds virtually. 

YOU can help the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) support kids with cancer and their families through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. 

Great events come in all shapes and sizes, here are some ideas to get you started:

Share your Story

Organize a ‘Non-Contact’ Community Event 
From a virtual auction to a social distancing street party, there are many ways to get creative at bringing your family and friends together while keeping everyone safely apart. 

Develop Your Own Endurance Challenge
