When you run for Team One Step

You will help give kids with cancer a life changing week at camp. Kids with cancer are more likely to be bullied, ostracized, and experience social anxiety and isolation at school …but not at camp. Camp is a place they can just be kids!

“When I’m at camp all the other worries of life dissipate.” – Ryan, Age 19

“Camp is a time and place to celebrate all that we have and not feel self-conscious about our battle scars. We’re all in this together at One Step!” –Maya, Age 16

“Camp is special to me because I can be me without anyone judging me. Camp is the best place!” – Jack, Age 11
