Our 8th annual Walk is going digital!   |   The Sashbear Foundation  |  sashbear.org  

The Sashbear Web Walk is going online May 24, 2020


What is the Web Walk?

Join an online presentation featuring mental health advocates from around the world, artists, medical professionals, The Sashbear Foundation leaders, and more, in a celebration of hope, community and support for those struggling in this difficult time.


Last year over 500 of you attended the Walk and created a sea of orange. Leading up to our Web Walk, we challenge you to participate in a whole new way by taking part in the #SashbearChallenge.

Wear orange, take a picture or video of an exercise or activity of your choice (get creative!), and share it with the hashtag #SashbearChallenge. That way, we’ll be able to experience another great moment of unity despite physical distancing.

REGISTRATION is $25 FREE this year.

Funds raised will go to initiatives like the Family Connections™ Program. In 2019, Sashbear ran over 80 Family Connections™ groups, each providing a total of 24 hours of skills to participants. Overall, these groups reached 1,100 family members by teaching them the skills needed to reduce stress, increase empowerment and better support their loved ones on their mental health journey. This year, with COVID-19, Sashbear has shifted its focus to online skills delivery – “alone, at home, and together”. Sashbear continues to shine bright in the mental health community, spreading the message of skills and hope through conference engagements and research projects all over the world.

Thank you to the 2020 Web Walk Sponsors

Meet Heather MacLean. Olympian.
Neonatal Nurse. Event Coordinator.

Our very own Heather MacLean has been featured by CBC sports for her courage in the face of COVID-19. We are proud to share her interview on using her Olympic swimming training to cope with the stress of working at a Toronto hospital. We invite you to applaud Heather for her selfless efforts on the medical front line and for continuing to tirelessly organize this year’s walk in her free time. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you Heather.
