ULI Toronto invites you to the launch of House Divided, published by Coach House Books. As Toronto faces a housing crisis, how should planners and the development industry rethink the way the city is growing?

Meagans Walk 2015

This year I had the pleasure of photographing the annual Meagan's Walk 5Km Fundraising Walk&Hug from Fort York to SickKids. Meagan’s Walk was founded by Denise Bebenek in 2001, the year she lost her cherished five-year-old daughter Meagan to a cancerous brain tumor.

From the www.meaganswalk.com website

Our mission is to share the message of hope, to increase public awareness about brain tumors and the devastating effects they have on children and their families, and to raise valuable financial resources for research into paediatric brain tumours - the leading cause of cancer-related death in children and young people under the age of 20.
Our flagship event is our Walk, which takes place annually on  Mother's Day weekend. Each year thousands of participants of all abilities take part in the 5km walk, which culminates in an human hug around the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), sending strength and love to those within.

It is always a pleasure and such an emotional event. Check out some of the photographs from the day.
