Summer 2018

Together We Hug! This was the theme for the 2018 Meagan’s Walk and Hug. All that makes Meagan’s Walk and Hug a success is due to our effort as a community. Our Meagan’s Walk families and participants, our Partners, and, of course, the devoted support of many volunteers!

Earlier this year, Meagan’s Walk was able to fund 8 brain tumour research projects, all focused on improving outcomes for young brain tumour patients. In late June, SickKids welcomed the 4th Meagan’s Walk Neuro-oncology Fellow, Dr. Lorena Baroni who comes to Canada from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Part of what sets Meagan’s Walk apart is that all your donations are directed to fund these research efforts. Our corporate and community partners are a vital part of the Meagan’s Walk community: their contributions provide for the operational costs.

Perhaps you, or someone you know, would be interested in becoming partners with Meagan’s Walk? There is a number of benefits that Meagan’s Walk offers our partners. Their support helps ensure that your donations to Meagan’s Walk have the biggest impact possible.

My thanks to all. I look forward to working with you as we move towards the 18th Annual Meagan’s Walk and Hug next May.
