Our leadership

Leading the way to fulfilling our vision

CAMPFIRE CIRCLE is led by a passionate group of people who are dedicated to giving kids and families affected by childhood cancer the chance to just be kids. We are currently looking to enhance the skills and professional experience of our board, and seek new members from diverse backgrounds with a broad range of qualifications, lived experiences and perspectives, that reflect the community we serve.
