Rotary will sponsor a road race on Thanksgiving Day
The Rotary Club of Orange announced its First Annual Rotary Turkey Trot – 5k Road Race. The race, scheduled for Thanksgiving morning on Thursday, November 28, 2013 will begin and end at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road.
Orange Rotary President, Carl Russell said, “Last year I tried entering a few local Thanksgiving Day races, but they were all sold out. This provided the Rotary Club of Orange and opportunity to meet a fun, emerging need by creating a new event for local runners.”
The Rotary Club is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Its organization is open to all persons regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference. There are 34,282 clubs and more than 1.2 million members worldwide.
Locally, the Rotary Club of Orange is engaged in numerous charitable activities designed to improve the lives of Orange and beyond. Russell said, “This race is another example of our fund raising efforts, where 100% of all monies raised will be used to provide charitable services and humanitarian support.”
