ABOUT THE SASHBEAR WALK
Sasha Menu Courey, a spirited young woman and rising star in Olympic swimming, lost her battle with mental health in 2011 and succumbed by suicide. In her memory, her parents Lynn and Mike took the plunge and created the Sashbear Foundation to raise awareness for early recognition, intervention and access to treatment for individuals with emotional dysregulation.
You are cordially invited to join us for the foundation’s biggest annual fundraiser - a lovely walk along the beach. Last year 600+ participants helped raise over $90,000 to support Family Connections™ programs across Canada. Let’s make a bigger splash this year.
