Ariad Gives Back

To celebrate Ariad’s 25th anniversary, we have given away $25,000 to ten different charitiesAriadites were divided into ten teams who worked together to independently choose a charity that would receive $2,500.The charities are all Toronto-based, and are small enough to see their $2,500 donation have a real impact on their mission. In these posts, we will highlight each charity to share their story and show why they were selected by our team.

Camp Oochigeas

Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer with unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences. Cancer changes a child’s life. So does Camp. That’s why Ooch offers a wide variety of year-round camp programs for kids with cancer, their siblings, and their families. There’s something for everyone, and every program is guaranteed to be filled with friendship, fun and life-changing memories.

Camp Oochigeas offers magical programs at their Residential (sleepover) Camp in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), three other regional cancer centres across Southern Ontario and at Ooch Downtown, their urban recreational facility in the heart of Toronto. Cancer is a difficult experience for the whole family. In response to this reality, Ooch offers various programs for children (ages 4-18) with and affected by childhood cancer, their siblings and their parents/guardians. Some campers are newly diagnosed and on active treatment and some have been in remission for years. The Ooch community is full of kids and families that understand.

Ariad is proud to support Camp Oochigeas through our Ariad Gives Back 25th anniversary charity drive.
