It's Time for a "HUG" Toronto!!! 8th Annual Meagan's Walk: Creating a Circle of Hope

May 8, 2009, TORONTO, ON - Spend this Mother's Day, Sunday, May 10,
2009, helping to advance children's health research. Come out to the 8th
Annual Meagan's Walk: Creating a Circle of Hope. This event gives hope and
generates awareness about the devastating effects of paediatric brain
tumours and raises much needed funds for research in this area.

Beginning at 10:00 am at Ontario Place, Meagan's Walk draws thousands of
participants who wind their way through downtown Toronto (Ontario Place
along Queens Quay West, north on Lower Simcoe, East on Bremner, North on
York St. to University Ave. to SickKids) and head towards The Hospital for
Sick Children (SickKids) on University Avenue. Registration opens at 8:30

With an anticipated arrival time of 11:00 a.m., all media are encouraged to
come to the hospital to witness the human "hug" - where all participants join
hands and surround SickKids - a symbol of strength and support for all the
children, mothers and families fighting illness at SickKids, across Canada and
around the world.

Following the hug, walkers will congregate at 'Mother's Way'- a specially
designated sidewalk in front of SickKids where they can show their support to
mothers and their families who are currently spending this Mother's Day in
hospital with their child.
