Other Ways to Help

The first annual Meagan’s Walk: Creating a Circle of Hope took place on Mother’s Day 2002.  Despite the rainy weather, more than 800 chilled and determined participants joined hands and formed that first “hug” around The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), as a simple gesture of support for the children and their families within. Meagan’s Walk has been steadfast in its determination to raise awareness about paediatric brain tumours and to generate funds for the much needed research into this illness.  It is only through research that the mysteries and challenges of brain tumours will be understood, and better treatments can be developed to fight this deadly illness. As well as participating in the annual Meagan’s Walk on Mother’s Day Weekend there are other ways to give. Together we can make a difference. 

Personal Donations

Meagan’s Walk is proud to support SickKids, a health care facility that is known throughout the world for its discovery and leadership in children’s health care.  Funds raised through Meagan’s Walk are directed to The Arthur and Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Centre located at SickKids.  This is the only research facility in Canada dedicated to paediatric brain tumours, a leading cause of cancer related death in young people under age 20. Donations to Meagan’s Walk are receipted by SickKids Foundation. You may also wish to consider making a donation in memory of a loved one, or as a tribute in honour of a special occasion, such as an anniversary, a graduation or a colleague’s retirement.
