2014 Ken Sykes 5K Run/Walk

On October 4th, 2014 over 50 people braved the rainy weather and participated  of our fifth Annual 2014 Ken Sykes Run/ Walk sponsored by McDougall Financial Insurance.

Ken was a true champion for children; he was an active member of Quinte Children’s Foundation Board of Directors for 7 years holding various positions including treasurer and Board Chair. Unfortunately, Ken left us much too early; this is our way of always remembering his contribution to the children in our community.

A true testament to the man Ken was, his friends, his family and his community have rallied behind this event since 2010 generating funds for a program that was important to him, Reach for Success Bursary Program.  This program allows youth that may otherwise not have a chance to continue their education an opportunity to do so.  Bursaries are presented to youth and kids in the care of Highland Shores Children’s Aid at the annual Quinte Children’s Foundation Youth Award night. Over $12,500 was  raised at this year’s event and, to-date, Ken Sykes Run/Walk has raised over $70,000 for the QCF Bursary Awards program.

We are looking forward to our 6th Ken Sykes Run/Walk and we hope you can join us for a beautiful morning 5k run or walk next year!

Quinte Children’s Foundation would like to thank all the runners and walkers who came out to the Ken Sykes Kommunity Ties Run/Walk. Our most sincere thanks to our fabulous Sponsors; this  would not have been possible without your never ending support and kindness. To all Committee Members,  QCF staff and fantastic Volunteers, thank you!

See you next year!
