Tour For Kids

Tour for kids is a cycling fundraising events that donates all the money raised to the three childhood oncology camps of ontario, Camp Trillium, Camp Quality, and Camp Oochigeas. When my sister was younger, she had cancer, and now our whole family attends Camp Trillium in the summers. Tour for kids is our major fundraiser, and as a transitional movement for teens, camp takes a few campers to volunteer and to see the reason camp is alive and open for children the problems that we face.

It was literally the most fun I have ever had doing hard labour. Just seeing all the people working their hardest to make something so simple yet so incredible happen. These people biked tirelessly (100km, 160km, or 200km), Just so that kids affected by cancer can have a normal, camp experience. It was people like these people that made it certain my camp experience was amazing, and it is because of them that I will continue on to be a counsellor and many more kids can experience something as good and pure as camping during such a nightmare as cancer.

P.S. These are my friends from camp, and we voluteered at the rest stop, dressing up like pirates, cross-dressing clowns, fairy princesses, and moustache fiends. I hope you enjoy
