Community Partnerships

H.appi Camper

YPT and Meagan’s Walk: Kids Helping Kids

Over the next year, Young People’s Theatre is pleased to work with Meagan’s Walk, a wonderful organization dedicated to bringing hope and awareness to cancer-related brain illness in children and youth. Meagan’s Walk: Creating a Circle of Hope was founded by Denise Bebenek in 2001, the year she lost her cherished five-year-old daughter Meagan to a cancerous brain tumour. Since its inception the organization has worked with families, children and youth to raise more than $5 million for ground-breaking research and is having global impact on the care of and outcomes for young brain tumour patients around the world. Megan’s Walk works with students and youth leaders, encouraging them to live with compassion, caring for those in their midst who struggle with challenges. Young People’s Theatre and Meagan’s Walk – kids helping kids!
