Toronto Mothers Run for Children’s Illness Camp: A Story of Strength and Community



Kadin, a cancer-survivor, found solace as a child patient at Toronto‘s SickKids hospital. His mother, Karen Jewels, narrates how running became her tribute to her son’s resilience. Although Kadin was unable to participate in physical activity due to his illness, Jewels channeled his spirit while training for marathons.

This Sunday, Toronto will witness Jewels, along with members of Campfire Circle, a unique camp for children with severe diseases. Campfire Circle was instrumental in shaping Kadin’s journey through illness, granting him a supportive space to connect with peers facing similar challenges.

Kadin, now a law and real estate student at York University, credits the camp for instilling in him a deep well of wisdom and resilience. Camp experiences don’t just end with childhood for people like Kadin and Serena, another camper fighting leukemia under her mother’s guidance, who mirrors Kadin’s tale of perseverance.

At Campfire Circle, Serena blossomed into an empowered individual, surpassing her limits and expectations. Her mother, Rabinowitz, cherishes the camp for providing a safe environment where Serena isn’t pressured to keep up with others—here, she thrives at her pace. Proud parents like Rabinowitz acknowledge the unique and vital role such camps play in enhancing the quality of life for children battling severe illnesses.

With fundraising runs and peaceful walks, these mothers not only honor the institutions like SickKids that saved their children’s lives but also celebrate pivotal programs like Campfire Circle that supported their children’s emotional well-being. Their narrative paints a powerful picture of strength, hope, and community in the face of adversity.
