So who is Camp Ooch and why do we at Erace Cancer Cycling Team p/b La Bicicletta support their efforts

So why do we sponsor Camp Oochigeas and who are they anyway.. what do they do?
We chose to work with them because the help kids . They help kids and their families when they find themselves in very difficult circumstances follow our team and racing at www.eracecancer.ca
WHAT IS CAMP OOCH?
Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer with unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences.
Cancer changes a child’s life. So does Camp. At Ooch, we offer a wide variety of year-round camp programs for kids with cancer, their siblings, and their families. There’s something for everyone, and every program is guaranteed to be filled with friendship, fun and life-changing memories.
WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN?
We offer magical programs at our Residential (sleepover) Camp in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), three other regional cancer centres across Southern Ontario and at Ooch Downtown, our urban recreational facility in the heart of Toronto.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Cancer is a difficult experience for the whole family. In response to this reality, we offer various programs for children (ages 4-18) with and affected by childhood cancer, their siblings and their parents/guardians. Some campers are newly diagnosed and on active treatment and some have been in remission for years. The Ooch community is full of kids and families that understand.
WHEN DOES IT HAPPEN?
Programs happen almost 365 days a year. There is always something happening at Ooch.

June 9th Erace Cancer is now at $56,000.00 for Camp Oochigeas and a little weekend update

Its June 9th. - Erace Cycling Team p/b La Bicicletta Update

Warm weather has arrived. We are racing every week at this point in the season. As you all know we race the Road ,Mountain, and Cyclocross circuits in Ontario . What perhaps many of you do not realize is that bike racing in Ontario stretches from March all the way until December.
In fact racing, bike racing is seasonally adjusted and focused

What I mean by this is that certain race disciplines are focused in certain times of the year.

Some examples:

Road racing - Mostly Spring through early summer
( Time trial and crit series go throughout the summer )
Mountain bike racing - All summer
Cyclocross - Late summer, fall early winter


We are basically finishing the spring season with allot of the  Road O'cup races complete. Mountain bike racing is going strong and we are looking forward to a full summer of racing

In the coming weeks and month we will be preparing for National Road and Mountain biking events

Weekly racing:

Our team races every week at criterium, time trial , and mountain bike events
If you want to find out more , you can check out www.midweekclub.ca
or Ontariocycling .org

Fundraising for Camp Ooch

We race bikes! and we do it for a cause.
We support a charity that supports cancer programs for kids
We are not unique, lots of people and teams support charity
We are not a large organization
We are just a small group of people , dedicated to racing hard and working hard to put our efforts to something meaningful.
We are a grass roots organization doing simple things that hopefully assist others in need

So far this year we have raised $56000.00, please go to Ooch.org find us  ( Erace Cancer )under events and please make a small donation to the team. We would really appreciate it as we work towards our 2014 goal.

Weekend results:

The weekend we raced in two major events
Both were O Cups.

KW Classic - Road
( A difficult and messy race with lot s ugly crashes and rain from start to finish !!!)
