How do I create a team?Artur2022-09-20T20:44:43+00:00
Campfire Circle provides life-changing programs for kids and families affected by childhood cancer or serious illnesses, at no cost to them. As a registered charity, Campfire Circle relies solely on the generosity of donors, fundraisers, volunteers, and partners to deliver camp-inspired programs in hospital, at community events, and at overnight camps. Fundraising through Sporting Life 10K ensures Campfire Circle reaches more kids and families across Ontario.
When does my Promotional Gift Card expire?Artur2022-11-14T21:19:57+00:00
Yes, all children 12 years of age and under can participate when accompanied by an adult. Children must be a minimum of 8 years old to participate as a registered participant.
Children under 8 years of age can be a part of the event if they are in a stroller or in a baby jogger. Children in strollers are free, however, as they are not registered participants, they will not receive a run shirt, bib or finisher medal.
Are walkers allowed?Artur2022-09-20T21:03:40+00:00
More than a thousand children were diagnosed with cancer during the pandemic. For almost 40 years, Campfire Circle offers healing through happiness for thousands of kids and families affected by childhood cancer or serious illnesses by providing programs that give kids the chance to just be kids—engaging in community, in-hospital, and overnight camp programs, at no cost to them. Relying solely on donors and fundraisers, participating in the Sporting Life 10K ensures Campfire Circles continues to reach more kids and their families, year-round, across Ontario.
Are there camp programs happening now?Artur2022-11-10T21:14:36+00:00
In-hospital, community and overnight programs continue all-year round. Overnight camp operates at Rainbow Lake and Muskoka. In-hospital programs are offered bedside at SickKids, McMaster Hospital and the Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences. Local, accessible community programs take place in Toronto, Hamilton, London, and Ottawa.
Did you change charity partners this year?Artur2022-11-10T21:16:07+00:00
No, Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium merged in 2020, and in January 2022 became Campfire Circle, placing kids and families affected by childhood cancer or serious illnesses at the heart of what we do, and recognizes the caring community surrounding them.
I made a donation to last year’s Sporting Life 10K. When will I get my charitable tax receipt?Artur2022-11-10T21:18:59+00:00
If you requested a tax receipt at time of donation you would have received the receipt via email. If you didn’t request a tax receipt or can’t locate your tax receipt, please contact SL10K@campfirecircle.org for support.
Can in-person Sporting Life 10K and virtual participants participate on the same team?Artur2022-09-20T21:18:00+00:00
Yes, we will be providing shuttle buses this year from the finish line to the start line only. There are no shuttle buses after the run taking you back to the start line. Please see the Getting to the Start Line section of the Run Information Page for more info.
The Sporting Life 10K start line is located at 1950 Yonge St at Davisville Ave. This is 1.9K south of the Sporting Life store.
The Sporting Life 10K proceeds south down the iconic Yonge St to Richmond St. The route continues west on Richmond St, to York St, west on Bremner to Rees St and then along to Lakeshore Blvd and then to the finish line.
After crossing the finish line, the fun continues at Coronation Park for the Post-Event Party. It’s a time to celebrate what you have accomplished and the impact you have on the lives of kids and families affected by childhood cancer. Together we will raise $2 million for CAMPFIRE CIRCLE so that kids affected by childhood cancer can just be kids.
What roads are closed, and for how long, on event day?Artur2022-11-03T15:11:55+00:00
Due to the size of the event there will be several road closures on Sunday, May 14. Please allow additional travel time to reach your destination especially if you need to get across Yonge St. between Eglinton Ave. and Richmond St. and/or travel on Lakeshore Blvd.
Road closure information is coming April 2023
Can anyone cross the finish line?Artur2022-09-20T21:39:35+00:00
Ideally not. You should enjoy the event atmosphere and environment. If you do wear them, please ensure that the volume is low enough to hear any instructions given to you by our course marshals and that you are aware of others around you.
