Since 2013, Camp Trillium and MLSE Foundation have worked together creating the MLSE Team Up Challenge presented by Ford. Today, we announce that Camp Trillium will become a Legacy Partner of MLSE Foundation in 2018. What does that mean for Camp Trillium? MLSE Foundation has committed to providing sustainable funding for the future to ensure that Camp Trillium continues to provide excellent recreational programming for children living with cancer and their families in the Greater Toronto Area and the province of Ontario.
Camp Trillium will be stepping away from the MLSE Team Up Challenge and participating in the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer month in November 2018. Camp Trillium’s role in Hockey Fights Cancer has traditionally been focused on one day, but in 2018 it will move to a full month dedicated to raising funds for Camp Trillium. Camp Trillium and MLSE Foundation will work together to create an exciting month that provides plenty of opportunities for our camp families, volunteers and supporters to be involved. We are excited grow our relationship with MLSE Foundation into a Legacy Partnership.
“Camp Trillium has worked with MLSE Foundation for almost 10 years. We began with 50/50 and Hockey Fights Cancer and then a five-year commitment to work together on the MLSE Team Up Challenge that saw 1400 children living with cancer go to camp. We are very excited to move our partnership to a new level as we become a Legacy Partner and work with MLSE Foundation to create a whole month focused on Hockey Fights Cancer and send even more children living with cancer and families to Camp Trillium.”
What is happening with the MLSE Team Up Challenge? It is evolving into a five-sport event (adding beach volleyball and dodgeball) to be held at Cabana and Polson Pier, Toronto, in support of MLSE Foundation’s newest initiative, MLSE LaunchPad. If you had a team in the MLSE Team Up Challenge last year, we encourage you to support both MLSE LaunchPad in June and Camp Trillium in November!
We look forward to sharing our plans for Hockey Fights Cancer Month with you soon. If you have any questions about how you can get involved in Novembers activities please contact: Fiona Fisher by email at fionaf@camptrillium or call (416) 458-2526.
