Run or walk 10k this May 12, 2013 and support Camp Oochigeas, a privately funded, volunteer based organization, that provides local kids with cancer and kids affected by childhood cancer, the opportunity to just be kids. With no government funding, Camp Oochigeas relies on the support of generous donors, fundraisers and volunteers in order to ensure that every child diagnosed with cancer at Sick Kids Hospital has the opportunity to experience the magic of camp at absolutely no cost to their families.
The goal of the Industry Challenge in the Sporting Life 10k, is to create a team building and philanthropic experience for companies by bringing together different industries from across the Greater Toronto Area to fundraise for Camp Oochigeas. Last year, the Industry Challenge had 11 industries participate and fundraised over $450,000! Within each industry, company teams compete for top spot in their industry’s fundraising challenge.
For the first time, Dentistry, is part of the Industry Challenge and dental offices are encouraged to create teams of runners and walkers to fundraise for Camp Ooch and participate in the race day run or walk.
The dental office or team that raises the most money for Camp Ooch will be recognized in two thank you advertisements printed in a national newspaper and a special Ooch recognition piece… not to mention bragging rights for a full year of being the Sporting Life 10k Dentistry Team Champions for 2013.
Register your dental office today and for every $100 raised online, your team will receive 1 free race registration. If you have 5 or more runners and your team raises $1000 or more, your race kits will be delivered to your office door.
What better way to team build in your office, get in shape and give back to a very important group of kids in our community?
