Charity



POGOdotca_colour_horz

POGO has been the designated charity partner and beneficiary of the 2XU Toronto Women’s Run Series presented by GoodLife Fitness for Women since 2009. Over $315,000 has been raised by the races so far! Help us raise over $30,000 for kids’ cancer care in 2017!

Did you know that cancer is the leading disease-related cause of death among kids in Ontario? By fundraising or donating to a participant your support will help children with cancer and their families through diagnosis, treatment and beyond.

The Pediatric Oncolo_mg_0027-editgy Group of Ontario (POGO) champions childhood cancer care. When a child is battling cancer, we ensure that the child has lifelong access to the best care for the best possible outcomes. POGO leads a unique and impactful pediatric cancer network that is a model for Canada and the world.

Start fundraising today! YOU can make a meaningful difference for kids in cancer care.
