The annual Dog Days Run is our club’s primary fundraiser.  Held the second Saturday in August for the last seven years, this 5K road race brings club members together for a day of fun, fellowship and fundraising.  In addition to raising funds for worthy charities and supporting Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self,” the Dog Days Run is a highly visible event with hundreds of participants, building awareness in the community of Rotary’s brand for humanitarian service.   
 
Our August 2013 Dog Days Run raised over $55,000 for community needs.  Participation by sponsors and runners was at the highest level ever in our eighth year, and our race course location provides us the ability to continue growing our race as well as being spectator friendly, allowing friends and family of the runners, and others, to join in the fun.  Work on the August 2014 Dog Days Run started in January, and we are reaching even higher this year!
 
Our race course originates at Mt. Bethel Methodist Church and goes from there to Johnson Ferry Road then to Upper Roswell Road.  Radio and newspaper media coverage, make this an event that can’t be missed.  A banner on Johnson Ferry Road, a major thoroughfare through our community, announces the race to passing commuters for weeks ahead of time.  The East Cobb Neighbor and several other papers carry the application for the Dog Days Run.  The Marietta Daily Journal runs an article about the race on the front page of their sports section.  All of this builds recognition of Rotary within our community.
