The Sashbear Walk

The Sashbear Walk has been an annual event since 2013, bringing together families, friends, those with lived experience, mental health providers and supporters throughout the community to create a sea of orange in support of those with emotion dysregulation.

This annual walk is the largest event of its kind in Canada for emotion dysregulation and borderline personality disorder, and is now held in 5 major cities and many other communities each year.

People come together to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and make waves together on the journey to provide hope of a life worth living, for all.

The Sashbear Walk 2023 will be held in these cities, and anywhere else you are walking in your own community or connecting virtually with Sashbear in mind:

  • Surrey, BC — May 14, 2023 (tentative)
  • Toronto, ON — May 28, 2023, at Sir Casimir Gzowski Park
  • Montreal, QC — date soon to be announced
  • Edmonton, AB — June 17, at Victoria Park
  • St. John’s, NF — June 17 (tentative)
  • Virtual Walk — May 14-June 17, walk in your own community
