Columbus Rotary 5K

We have 230 people signed up for our inaugural 5K on Friday!  It's not too late to spread the word throughout the community to join in the fun.    The race will benefit the Club and our Foundation.  You can still help by;   

1) Sharing the event with your Friends & Family,
2) Sharing the Club's posts on Facebook & Twitter, and
3) Tell people they can register on site.

Your Annual Campaign
Each year the Columbus Rotary Foundation asks the members of the Club to dig into their pockets and support our many projects with their own treasure.  Starting in September with our Pace Setters Campaign, The Foundation made that ask.  As Campaign Chairman Tim Maghie said at the September 30 Kick Off.  "If we meet our $90,000 goal early, you won't hear from us anymore."  

To date 113 Rotarians have donated more than $60,684 toward YOUR GOAL.  Are you one of the 113 or the 139 from whom we've yet to hear.  If you are the latter use the link below TODAY to donate,  OR -  simply email the article author here to give your pledge, and pay later, such as on a Monday at Rotary!

 or by using the same button on the Club website.  

Help Chairman Tim Maghie, Foundation President Sandy Knoesel, and President Elect Chip Chapman rest easy by helping to reach our goal TODAY!
