Toronto Paramedic Services' Deputy Chief Cindy Nicholson, paramedic Tom Bruce and his four-year-old daughter Stephanie – who is a Camp Oochigeas ("Camp Ooch") camper – and paramedic John Flengas will deliver a donation to the camp's site in downtown Toronto by ambulance. The craft-supply donations, collected from Toronto Paramedic Services employees this summer, will be used to support Camp Ooch activities.
Date: Tuesday, August 25
Time: 10 a.m. – arrival of ambulance with donations
Location: Camp Oochigeas, 464 Bathurst St., Toronto
Bruce's daughter Stephanie was treated over the past year for neuroblastoma, a form of paediatric cancer. She and her family were supported by Camp Ooch program specialists, counsellors, volunteers and staff.
Flengas, a long-time fundraiser for the camp, has already raised more than $10,000 for this year's annual Corvettes for Kids road tour (https://www.ooch.org/cfkrt), which is scheduled for September 13.
