The Rotary Club of Orange will host its 4th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5k Road Race/2 mile walk on November 24, 2016. 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. The race steps off at 8 a.m. This is a fun family friendly event.
The funds raised from this event will go towards supporting Orange Rotary’s initiatives both locally and abroad. Locally, the Orange Rotary provides 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.
The last four 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.
