A-Day Family Fun Run for Horizons





Why not begin our 40th A-Day with the way the first one began in 1979. That year, our 150th Anniversary, we kicked off the first A-Day with the Jubilee Association Run for all UCC students. Prince Phillip, the College’s official Visitor, handed out the awards. Fast forward to 2019 and we once again will be starting Association Day with a little fun race, this time for the whole family. There will be a 3 km course marked out on campus and all members of the School family are invited to run - current students and their siblings, Old Boys and their families, parents, past parents and grandparents. Richard Sadleir, who was the Principal in 1979 will be our touch of royalty this time, and will hand out awards. 

*In lieu of an entry fee all participants are asked to make a donation to UCC's Horizons program. Horizons is a rewarding tutoring and mentoring partnership between students at UCC (Years 8-12) and elementary schools in Toronto. The Horizons Program began in 1999, and provides mutually beneficial learning opportunities and experiences for all the students involved. Coincidentally, this year is Horizon’s 20th Anniversary.
