Ontario Tech chancellor creates Chancellor’s Challenge fundraising event

July 14, 2021
Ontario Tech University’s chancellor Mitch Frazer has created the Chancellor’s Challenge, which is an annual event focused on raising $1M for the Ontario Tech Student Support Fund’s bursaries and scholarships. Frazer’s challenge included running or walking 7.2 kilometers, which is the distance between Ontario Tech’s north Oshawa and downtown Oshawa campuses, every day from February 15 to March 14. Community members joined Frazer in walking or running, and participated through donating to the campaign. “We have to make sure Ontario Tech students have the support they need so they can succeed,” said Frazer. “I am thrilled about the widespread support for the first-annual Chancellor’s Challenge. Our university and our community are making a vital difference in the lives of young people, one step at a time.” Ontario Tech (ON)
