Oak Bay High, Jack Wallace Track Fundraiser

The Jack Wallace Track, located at Oak Bay High School, was last resurfaced for the 1994 Commonwealth Games. The school continues to use it for teaching and training purposes and the community uses it extensively as a resource for clubs and individuals. The Oak Bay High School Alumni Association seeks to raise funds to resurface the track prior to Oak Bay High hosting the Canadian Francophone Games this coming July 14th through 18th.

The Canadian Francophone Games (CFGames) is the largest gathering of French-speaking youth. 1,200 provincial and territorial ambassadors aged 14-18 years old will take part in Arts, Leadership and Sports competitions held every 3 years in a different Canadian city.

The track is not safe or suitable to host any sanctioned event in its current condition. If the surface can be brought up to standard in time for the CFGames then the track events can take place at Oak Bay High alongside the rest of the events of the CFGames. 

Resurfacing the track will not only contribute to the success of the CFGames but this legacy will be enjoyed by the school and members of the community for generations to come. We need your help to focus our collective energy into converting this goal into a reality. Please donate to this worthwhile cause and continue to invest in the success of Oak Bay High School Athletics.

PLEASE NOTE: A charitable tax donation receipt is not available through this GoFundMe site but if you would like to make a donation of more than $20.00 and would like a tax receipt, please contact the Oak Bay High School Alumni Association Treasurer by email at [email redacted] for instructions on how to make your donation. Thank you for your support!
