'7 Runs, 7 Counties, 7 Days'
Rotarians pitching in to get ready                         Concern for others...when close, wear your mask!
Our District’s ‘7 Runs, 7 Counties, 7 Days' series of events raised $4,027 for Polio Plus. About 45 Rotarians, from 14 of our District's 44 clubs,
participated by walking, running, setting up, or donating, during the 7 consecutive days from June 21st thru 27th.
These funds will be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gated Foundation for a total of $12,081!
PDG Dave said that, at times, it seems as though the 44 clubs in our District are like islands in a lake, few knowing what is happening on the others.
The original intent of this series of events was to have the clubs in each of our District’s 7 counties (Delaware, Otsego, Chenango, Tioga, Cortland, Broome, Tompkins)
work together to plan, promote, setup, and run each event.
Well, as we all know, the Covid 19 pandemic changed things so the ‘Plan ‘B’ was simple…DGE Evan said “I will be at this place, at this day and time, for anyone who cares to join me.“.
At several locations Rotarians from clubs in that county stepped up, as Rotarians do, to make that day a little bigger and better and, of course,
the pandemic didn’t stop the donations and pledges!
Thanks go out to Rotarians from the following clubs for their support and participation.
Binghamton Noon, Cortland, Cortland Breakfast, Delhi, Dryden, Endicott, Endwell, Franklin, Milford, Morris, Owego, Sherburne, Stamford, and Vestal.
So start planning for 2021 and let’s make the list of participating club’s too long to print!
             Families are a big part of Rotary…                                                ...as are dogs!
