About MBF

Since its inception in 2001, Meagan Bebenek Foundation, previously Meagan's Walk, has evolved from just a hospital hug to include many more programs, events, and funding opportunities to better support, raise awareness and provide critical funds to further research on paediatric brain tumours. 


Our Signature Event

The HUG is where Meagan Bebenek Foundation first began. In 2002, 800+ participants joined the first human hospital HUG around the Hospital for Sick Children. Since then, our HUG has grown to thousands of participants who walk the 5k from Fort York to SickKids every Mother's Day weekend, alongside the support of over 200 volunteers, every year.
