The Robb Thompson Memorial Fundraiser

Robb had the opportunity to take part in a weekend dog sledding expedition, several overnight canoe excursions, learned how to wake board, as well as many other fun and exciting activities that most boys his age never have the opportunity to experience.

Camp Ooch (now CAMPFIRE CIRCLE) was a place where Robb could open up and talk to other kids that were experiencing the same thoughts and fears as he was. Other than camp, Robb kept his sickness to himself. Many of his friends did not know he had cancer as he feared friends and classmates would treat him differently. Camp Ooch however, created a safe and welcoming atmosphere where he was able to share stories and engage in the joys of being a child.

Robb was to be an L.I.T. (Leader in Training) once he turned 16, but unfortunately did not get that opportunity, as his cancer progressed and he passed away in May 2009. We feel strongly about our fundraising efforts for Camp Ooch, as we want to help other children have an opportunity of a lifetime, like Robb.
