Learning that your child has cancer is one of the most devastating things a family can hear. Thankfully there are events like the Sporting Life 10k Ottawa that raises funds to help the doctors and nurses handle close to 5,400 patient visits to CHEO’s oncology clinic each year. We want to thank everyone at Sporting Life, their customers and participants for making this event a reality. The money raised will help the staff at CHEO deliver world-class care and fund research that we hope will one day eradicate all pediatric cancers.

My name is Isla and today I'm cancer free thanks to the great care I received at CHEO. Please give to the Sporting Life 10K and help other CHEO patients fight cancer too.
Isla - Oncology Patient, Age 12
As a pediatric oncologist at CHEO I am thrilled that money raised from the Sporting Life 10K will help our patients. Thanks to new technology, research and better supportive care, patients have a better survival rate and better quality of life. Thank you for helping make that happen.
