Many of you may remember reading about my friend Erin and her son, Nolan, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2009 at the age of 3. Suddenly, their world turned upside down and life would never be the same.
It was been a three year battle for this family as Nolan has undergone treatment and faced countless struggles that go along with it. It hasn’t been easy, but they are going to win this fight. Nolan is scheduled to finish treatment this Spring.
Each year since Nolan was diagnosed, we have run Toronto’s Sporting Life 10K as a team and fundraised for Camp Oochigeas, an organization that has allowed Nolan – and other kids with Cancer – to still be kids. Camp Oochigeas provides fun and meaningful experiences to approximately 680 children affected by cancer each year. Camp Ooch does NOT receive government funding and they need our help.
This year, with Nolan finishing treatment in May just in time for the race, Sporting Life 10K (May 13th) is going to be one giant victory lap. Let’s make it count this year and help Nolan’s family achieve their goal of being the top fundraising team. What better way to commemorate the occasion?
