This special Brockville community event  was held on June 22,  2024 to  honour the memory of Brockville native Kevin Dunbar.  Kevin died suddenly and peacefully in his family home in Kingston on June 5, 2022. 

A Kevin Dunbar  Memorial Scholarship Fund  was set up in Kevin’s name. Signon fees for the Brockville event were considered a Brockville RRs’ donation to the scholarship fund. A total close to $1400 was raised.

Fifty nine (59) runners and walkers gathered at the BrockvilleTISS track  for the special event. These included club members, Kevin’s family and Kevin’s friends,  together with friends and neighbours of Tony and Eithne’s and others.
