Tour for Kids Ontario Update
COVID-19 has changed all our lives. We have taken a hard look at safety and how we protect the extremely vulnerable population we serve. Based on the current information available and after carefully considering the health and safety of all involved, we have decided to cancel 2020 Tour for Kids Ontario.
For registered riders, teams, and donors, we have sent you an email with instructions on next steps. If you don’t receive the email or have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are considering the status of each of our events individually and will be sharing updates over the next few weeks. If you have questions about a specific event, please visit our events page for ongoing updates: https://www.childhoodcancer.ca/Events
Camp is a vital part of the healing and recovery of children with cancer. While medical professionals address the complex physical needs of children with cancer, camp addresses their emotional and psychological needs. In addition to the psychological fallout of childhood cancer, over 75 per cent of survivors live with serious physical health problems such as blindness, deafness, growth issues, mobility issues, fertility problems or heart and kidney issues, which add yet another layer of psychological and financial complexity to their lives. Thanks to the support of our participants, donors and sponsors, camp is there to help reduce some of the aftermath of the disease. Camp gives kids a sense of belonging and helps them to make sense of their traumatic experiences
