Join me Saturday May 9th for Meagan's Walk! I will be leading a 15 minute stretch for all walkathon participants, as we join together to raise funds and awareness for Paediatric Brain Tumour Research and Sick Kids hospital.
Meagan’s Walk: Creating a Circle of Hope was founded by Denise Bebenek in 2001, the year she lost her cherished five-year-old daughter Meagan to a cancerous brain tumour.
Our mission is to share the message of hope, to increase public awareness about brain tumours and the devastating effects they have on children and their families, and to raise valuable financial resources for research into paediatric brain tumours - the leading cause of cancer-related death in children and young people under the age of 20. We do so through the love and generosity of a dedicated group of volunteers, school groups, sponsors and other supporters.
Our flagship event is our Walk, which takes place annually on Mother's Day weekend. Each year thousands of participants of all abilities take part in the 5km walk, which culminates in an human hug around the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), sending strength and love to those within.
