The Fortis 5K Walk / Run is a family-friendly event. The fun-filled event raises funds to assist students across the GTA and the Caribbean. Over 10 schools and associations benefit from your contribution. Programs and projects funded by proceeds of the walk include student dental care, scholarships to post secondary institutions and nutrition programs.
The emergence of COVID-19 has completely disrupted life as we knew it. Governments, businesses, institutions, organizations and individuals have had to make major adjustments to their once routine business practices and social activities. The traditonal fundraising efforts that many institutions like Kingston College Old Boy's Association has relied on over the years has been severely hampered. We hope that during or after tonight's event that "Old Boys" and supporters will be inspired to ensure that after 95 Years of Excellence the Fortis Family and Kingston College not only survive COVID-19 but thrive in the new normal to reach the century.
The Barry Huie Scholarship was initiated by Barry’s family who donated funds collected at his memorial. The Scholarship was open to a Kingston College Student accepted to pursue post-secondary studies. There has been two recipients, namely Akeem Thorpe in 2013, and Demoye Whitely in 2014.
