Celebrating 50 years of Irish Miles 

VC’s Walkathon was first held in the spring of 1973 as a student-led, school-wide fundraiser. Students approached family, neighbours, and friends to pledge an amount per mile walked, and collectively students raised funds to help with the construction of projects such as new tennis courts, installation of park benches and bleachers, as well as with purchasing needs that would enhance the boys’ experience, such as a new public announcement system for the gym, computers, lockers, and other needs. Br. Basil was the first teacher moderator for Walkathon, a role he held for 13 years until 1986. Learn more about Walkathon and its long-standing history by reading this story
