The Rotary Clubs in our area are planning their 21st annual walk-a-thon for community projects of clubs in Rotary District 7470, The Rotary Foundation and other worthwhile causes, and are inviting other charitable and community programs to join them and share the profits. “WALKFEST 2014” will be held on Sunday, October 5 at Waterloo Village in Stanhope. This event traditionally allows other non-profit groups to join the effort and keep 50% of the money they raised.
Any legitimate community or charitable program may participate. Youth programs, sports teams, religious groups, booster clubs, and school clubs are some of the other outside groups that are welcome to join this effort. Each group simply registers , enlists pledges for their walkers, enjoys a two-hour stroll in a lovely park and then gets a check in the mail for their own program. At the same time they are supporting The Rotary Foundation, which provides millions of dollars a year in world-wide humanitarian aid.
This year, “WALKFEST 2014” will also be benefitting the restoration of Waterloo Village as well as The Rotary Foundation.
