Meagan's Walk 2015
Tali's Team recently participated in Meagan's Walk as we do each year. Meagan's Walk is a 5 km walk that culminates with thousands of participants joining hands to hug the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), sending a message of hope and love to those within. Over 4,000 people participated this year to support paediatric brain tumour research at SickKids.
The kilometers walked by each participant will be counted towards the 2015 Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours campaign. This campaign was launched by the International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA). Each year, people around the world undertake sponsored or unsponsored walks to raise awareness about brain tumours and to symbolically “donate” the mileage covered to the World Walk target of circling the Earth.
The 2014 Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours collected a record total of 519, 057 km, which is equivalent to walking 13 times around the globe at the equator! Over 38 organizations from around the world held a total of 113 walks, raising awareness about brain tumours as well as valuable research funds.
