Are you wondering how your Rotary Club can raise funds for your Club service projects and the Rotary Foundation during these social-distancing times?  We have an answer to that — let’s go virtual.   This is a great opportunity to work together while staying six feet apart.

Join us for a great stay-at-home personal fund raiser, titled #RotaryStepsTogether.  From Sept. 15 to Nov. 15, Rotary Clubs in District 5110 can collectively take on the “quarantine 15 pounder” with a fitness fund raiser suited to any fitness or ability level.  This is a virtual fund-raising opportunity for Rotary members to step together in whatever exercise method they are passionate about.  Friends, family and other club members pledge online in support of your efforts measured in miles.

DG Cindi O’Neil is committing to walk 100 miles in 8 weeks and is hoping that friends and family will pledge one dollar-a-mile to go toward raising funds for her designated project, Rotary’sAnnual Fund, the fund that powers our local and international service projects.

What type of commitment would your club and members like to make?  Your club can fund raise for your own Club funds, The Annual Fund, PolioPlus, and a Wildfire Relief Fund!  This virtual fund raiser, #Rotary Steps Together, can help your Club exceed its goals for The Rotary Foundation and PolioPlus! As we approach “Steptember and Walktober”, you can walk, run, hike, golf, swim, dance, row, box, CrossFit or rake leaves and vacuum your way to those Rotary Foundation goals!  As long as you can move, you can #RotaryStepsTogether.

Individuals who raise $150 or more, and teams that raise $1,500 or more by Nov. 15, 2020, will receive a #RotaryStepsTogether water bottle!   Look for participation information in the Sept. 1 edition of 5110-in-Action eNews and District5110.org People of Action web posts.
