This item is our club's #1 (top pick) choice for our annual signature Service Project.
Our club organized and held a 5k runner race on August 3, 2019 in partnership with YMCA called the 5K Dog Days race. Our members raised over $92,500 from corporate and individual sponsors and involved over 1000 people from the local community (including runners). Volunteers included: Wheeler High School Avid students and teachers, East Cobb Robotics, Boy Scouts, and First Responders. Our Grants committee allocated money raised from this event to Non-Profit charities in the community for specific projects. We believe we raised the image of Rotary significantly within our community and positioned Rotary as a major force behind impactful service projects and initiatives in our community.
