The Rotary Club of Orange will host its 6th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5k Road Race on Thursday, Nov. 22. The race is certified and will start at the High Plains Community Center and run through Orange with a finish back at the Community Center at 8 a.m.
This is an economic development opportunity to bring people and business to Orange. The funds raised from this event will go towards supporting Orange Rotary’s initiatives both locally and abroad. Locally, they provide dictionaries to every third grader in Orange, register area children in the Amber Alert ID Program and make donations for the town food pantry and energy assistance program.
About the Rotary
The last six years the Rotary has participated in “Operation Warm” and donated thousands of coats to area schools and shelters to help keep underprivileged kids warm. Additionally, the club awards $6,000 in college scholarships annually to high school seniors from Orange.
Race sponsors make it possible to offer a dynamic race event promoting health and wellness, supporting great causes and driving traffic to the area. Extensive marketing and promotion of the event will give the Sponsors high visibility and recognition throughout the state, along with the opportunity to market their products and services.
The Rotary welcomes everyone to be part of this great event. By sponsoring Thanksgiving Day 5k Road Race, you are making a valuable financial contribution to help in all of Rotary’s initiatives.
