With a significant amount of interest and support already received for the OBA’s Walk A Mile initiative, the committee has decided to extended the project in order to allow for greater participation with the walk week now scheduled to take place between 2nd – 8th of May 2022.
In just the first few weeks since the launch the fraternity, especially Class Groups, have come together and shown their support for this ambitious initiative having raised in excess of Rs 10 million towards Walk A Mile beneficiary projects.
While the Smart Classroom project has received the largest donations through batch groups, the other projects are also beginning to benefit from the direct donations received and through participants including Old and Current Boys who have raised funds for each of their sponsored walks. The project has also garnered the support of the overseas OBA chapters who are preparing their participation plans which will make Walk A Mile a truly global event. he extension will also give the overseas chapters more opportunity to increase branch participation and raise funds.
In addition to the greater participation, the extension has also meant that the committee has been able to introduce new aspects to the project including a number of prizes to be won by participating school children.
