Under the auspices of the Warden of the S. Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia, Rev’d Marc Billimoria, the Walk A Mile website was launched this afternoon.
Old Boys, Students, Members of the Thomian family and well-wishers can now sign up as a participant or a donor and begin their Walk A Mile journey. The event is set to take place early December, while donations can be collected immediately.
Speaking on the occasion of the launch, the Warden said , ‘In responding to the challenges posed by the global Covid-19 pandemic the STC OBA, has organised a sponsored Walk a Mile Project to raise funds for ongoing infrastructure development projects of the School as it prepares to complete 175 years of existence in 2026. This unique project will enable present boys, alumni, parents and friends of the College to raise funds by walking a mile wherever they are, even within their homes and gardens if required. I have no doubt that the team will do an amazing job and I am very thankful to every one of them for the time and talents they have invested on behalf of the College, as always, paying back in their own ways the nurture fee they owe their alma mater.
I commend this project to all present Thomians, alumni near and far as well as all friends of the College. I wish the organizing committee every success.’
