CTV News recently featured the touching story of local Toronto teen, Antonia Barbaric and her late-sister Kristina. A student at St. Joseph’s College, each year Antonia sells cupcakes to raise money for Camp Oochigeas and the Sporting Life 10K Race. The fundraising efforts of this remarkable young woman are in memory of her older sister, Kristina, who lost her battle with cancer at the age of 17. So far, Antonia has managed to raise $24,000 to send other children to Camp Ooch and give them the opportunity to enjoy their lives to the fullest.

“I’ve realized that I have two choices: I can either live my life in sorrow or I can live my life in hope. Raising awareness for Camp Ooch is what pulls me through the day and what keeps my going.” – Antonia Barbaric
