Sashbear Web-Walk 2020
The Sashbear Foundation
The Sashbear Foundation’s first-ever Web Walk was an enormous success. To everyone who participated and supported our cause, we are utterly overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. Your actions prove that despite difficult times, we can always find a way to share the love.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
We are keeping the campaign open until May 31st!
THE WEB WALK
Given the current circumstances, we have been forced to rethink how to move forward with our annual Walk.
COVID-19 is triggering mental health issues on a global level. Now, more than ever, we need to continue our mission to lift others up.
So, we’ve decided to go full-STREAM ahead.
Join us for Sashbear’s first-ever Web Walk – an event of physical movement at home followed by an online presentation of connection, musical entertainment, special guests and mindfulness.
We may need to stay home alone, but nobody should feel alone.
All funds raised will go to Sashbear initiatives such as the Family Connections™ Program, where families meet, discuss and develop tools to support their loved ones with emotion dysregulation, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or related difficulties.
We are also proud to announce Family Connections™ Program meetings have adapted and are now operating online.
RAISE FUNDS FOR SASHBEAR
We invite you to register as an individual or create a team to raise funds for Sashbear by doing a physical activity at your own pace, in your own space. Registration is free. When you register, you will get a web page to share with your friends and family so that they can make a donation in your name. Wear orange and dance in your kitchen, do jumping jacks in the backyard, play tag with the kids. Perhaps you can set a challenge for yourself. Get creative! Then share a video or picture with the hashtags #SashbearWebWalk2020 and #SashbearChallenge on social media.
See what some participants have already done on instagram and facebook.
We can all keep moving together, apart, and make waves on mental health.
We will collect all the media and create a special slideshow to play during the Web-Walk Celebration – to thank you for your strength and support.
If you are unable to participate, you can make contribute by making a donation or pledge for a participant or team.
