families living with (or impacted by) cancer all across Ontario.
for Cancer is a flexible, DIY (do-it-yourself) event which means the event can

Hosting a CampOut with your classmates (or community group) can be a
fun way to enjoy camp-like activities and make a big impact.

you have their approval, you can ask for their support in making it happen.
