In what has truly become an annual tradition in the Town of Orange, The Rotary Club of Orange will host its 5th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5k Road Race and 2 Mile Walk on Thanksgiving morning, November 23, 2017.

Whether you are a competitive runner, a casual jogger or just like to go for a nice walk on a beautiful autumn day, this event is sure to be one that you will enjoy participating in. Each of the past four years, the number of participants has grown significantly, making this one of our most important and successful fundraisers.

Race organizer and tri-athlete Carl Russell (don’t worry, he’s not running in the race) has been the driving force behind this event since its inception five years ago. Thanks to his hard work, leadership, and commitment to the success of the race, it has become a “don’t miss” race for participants from both near and far.

The funds raised from this event will go towards supporting several of the Orange Rotary’s initiatives both locally and abroad. Locally, Rotary provides dictionaries to every third grader in Orange, register area children in the Amber Alert ID Program and make much-needed donations to support the town food pantry, energy assistance programs, and others.

The last five 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.

Internationally, our fundraising efforts support clean water projects around the globe, donating funds for heart surgeries for hundreds of needy children and the ongoing fight against polio which still represents a threat to populations in many countries.

Please join in to help support this fun and worthy event and get your Thanksgiving Day off to a great start!
