“Camp Ooch wants to ensure every kid affected by cancer in Ontario has the chance to ‘Go to camp,’’ said Teya Vitko, Camp Oochigeas development/events coordinator, in a press release from the club. “Currently, 2,400 kids with cancer in Ontario do not have access to an oncology camp. Support from the Performance Boat Club of Canada Muskoka Lakes Parade of Power makes it possible for Ooch to provide more fun and friendship and send more kids with and affected by childhood cancer to camp.”
According to the release, sending one sick child to the camp for two weeks can cost as much as $4,000.
“Once again we are raising money for Camp Oochigeas, which annually services more than 1,000 children with cancer,” said Meghan Brousseau, the president of the Performance Boat Club of Canada, in the release. “It’s a truly a great cause.
The Performance Boat Club of Canada raised more than $20,000 for the charity during the last year’s Lake Muskoka event.
“We always have a blast on the Muskoka Lakes and this year will be no exception! We’ll stay at the Residence Inn Marriott and depart from the wharf at Gravenurst Dock on Saturday morning,” she continued. “We’re sending a big shout-out and thank-you to our title sponsors Birchpoint Marina and All Ontario Recycling and also a big thanks to new sponsor Hull Life Insurance Corporation.
