Fundraising

The Toronto Women’s Run Series has been supporting POGO since 2009. To date, in collaboration with the hard work of our dedicated participants, we have raised over $440,000!

The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) champions childhood cancer care. When a child is battling cancer, they ensure that the child has lifelong access to the best care for the best possible outcomes. From diagnosis, through treatment, and into survivorship, POGO is here for kids with cancer, for now, for life.

POGO is a charitable organization that relies on donations to run its exemplary programs and services and develop clinical resources. Your support will help POGO provide financial assistance to families so they can pay for out-of-pocket costs associated with their child’s treatment, support survivors with customized school and work counselling when their disease or its treatment has left them with learning challenges, and fund promising research that examines the impact of childhood cancer and its treatment.
