Ticker Talk Online

in Your Living Room on Zoom!

Ticker Talk is a free, online Camp Odayin meet up for heart kids in grades 1-12. Our hour together is a mini camp experience, full of campy-fun and interactive trivia, games, speakers and more. Prize giveaways for each event include gift cards, games, and Odayin goodies. There’s no cost to participate, but registration is required in order to receive access information to join the party on Zoom. This past year, Ticker Talk sessions were focused on the Odayin Way and fun ways for our hearts to be:

  • H = Helpful
  • E = Encouraging
  • A = Accepting
  • R = Respectful
  • T = Thankful

An illustration by Koji Minami depicting what campers said acceptance looks like. Some of the features of the image include Mortimer the turtle, a dinosaur helping a fellow dinosaur, and a camper receiving applause at a talent show.
On March 9th, our Ticker Talk was a smashing success! If you missed it, the Odayin family came together and created a wonderful collaborative piece of art, with the help of Koji Minami, an illustrator and YouTube sensation! Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself at the drawing!  We brainstormed what ACCEPTANCE looked like and Koji drew while we were talking.

"I just wanted to give you guys a huge shout-out! My son, age 9, attended his first Ticker Talk last week and he loved it! It was so exciting hearing him tell us all about the Zoom meeting and describe [what he learned about] his defect to us. It hadn’t dawned on me that we have never explained the specifics of Tetralogy of Fallot with him!! Keep doing what you’re doing – it matters to these precious heart kiddos and families!"
