  In 2013 started fundraising for Camp Ooch (a special camp for children undergoing cancer treatment) by running in The Sporting Life 10K run. I am a big believer in the anti-inflammatory diet and laughter therapy for supporting cancer patients so when it came time to support a charity, Camp Ooch just made sense.
