Light up the bat signal!

On June 9, the first anniversary of Sacha Chenier’s death, the internet is going to be lit up with the bat signal, inmemory of a little boy who loved Batman. Sacha Chenier lived in L’Orignal with his parents, Jason and Jacquelyn, and his older brother Sebastien. He was severely affected by cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen at birth, and required the use of a wheelchair for most of his life. His birth injury also left himblind, epileptic, and with severe cognitive delays. He attended school in Hawkesbury at the école Paul VI. Sacha passed away suddenly at the tender age of 11, on June 9, 2014, due to epilepsy related complications. On June 6, Sacha had gone to CHEO for a medical appointment. When leaving the hospital, they happened to come across Batman patrolling the parking lot. “There was no way we could leave without saying hello to Sacha’s favourite super hero,” said Jason. “So, we waved him down and took a quick photo. After taking the photo we went home and didn’t think much more about the chance meeting.” Only a few days later, on June 9, Sacha passed away without warning. “As we looked through our photos in preparation for the funeral during the days that followed, we got goose bumps when we came across the last photo of Sacha on my cell phone,” said Jason. “Looking back, it seems only fitting that Sacha’s very last photo was one of him laughing with Batman.” The Chenier family is asking the community to remember Sacha on June 9 by lighting up the Internet with the bat signal, andmaking it their Facebook profile picture, as well as change their status to #LightTheBatSignal in memory of Sacha. Twitter users are asked to tweet the photo along with the text. “It would be a nice way of remembering our little Batman,” said Jason. “And to bring some awareness to the inclusive playground project he inspired.” The project is Sacha’s Park , which is a playground where no one will have to sit on the sidelines because of a disability. The park is currently in the process of fundraising through community efforts, events, and available grants. Donations can be made to More information on Sacha’s Park can be found at

The last photo of Sacha Chenier was taken with his favourite character, Batman, just outside of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, on June 6, 2014, after a medical appointment.
