About Portage


Portage and Outward Bound will take their partnership to new heights this year – teaming up to bring you the first ever “Hit the Bricks” event on Sunday, April 28, 2013 at the Brick Works in Toronto. “Hit the Bricks” will be a family-oriented adventure festival offering plenty of opportunities for personal challenge and fun adventures. Proceeds from the event will help more teens and families in crisis to overcome addiction and mental health issues by expanding the Portage-Outward Bound Program in Ontario and at Portage centres across Canada.

The Festival will be kick-started by a two-hour-long Adventure Challenge Race that will put minds, bodies, and souls to the test, as teams compete through a gruelling course, including elements such as a 70-foot challenge tower, geocaching, a climbing wall, a ropes course, and a high tower rappel.

In the afternoon, the Adventure Challenge course will open to the public to give families and friends the opportunity to test their skills on the various components of the race, as well as participate in other similar activities that are bound to challenge and entertain participants of all ages.

Be sure to mark April 28th in your calendar and watch for more information about how you can participate in this event.
