Ian H.S. Riseley, the 2017-2018 President of Rotary International, has given his term the theme "Rotary: Making a Difference". However Rotarians choose to serve, they do it because they know their service makes a difference in the lives of others. Whether they are building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict  mediators or midwives, they know that the work they do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.

This year the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary Club is raising funds for a Mobile Soup Kitchen and Disaster Recovery Vehicle for SHIP (the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program).  Sapphire and Diamond sponsorships will go directly toward that cause, as will the 50% of the raffle that isn't returned to the winning ticket holders.  Other local Rotary clubs are also participating, as the relationships amongst the clubs in the district continues to strengthen.

Please help us Make A Difference by becoming a sponsor or a vendor, by purchasing 50/50 raffle tickets, or simply by registering for the run.

 

About the Run With Rotary

Proceeds will benefit the Rotary Club of Montgomery Rocky Hill Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is involved in local, national, and international charitable activities such as providing support for the Montgomery Township Food Pantry and programs spearheaded by Rotary International for the eradication of polio and provision of relief to victims of natural disasters through the ShelterBox Program.

Formerly known as the “Run with Aimee” this wonderful race was first held in 1997. After ten successful years, the founding family decided to end its participation in the race. The Rotary Club of Montgomery Rocky Hill, at the urging of the Montgomery Township Recreation Department, volunteered to maintain this important community activity. 

100% of your sponsorship goes to great causes!

The RUN WITH ROTARY is presented this year by Mason Griffin & Pierson, Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, and  Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Their thoughtful and generous donations represent a powerful commitment to this charitable community event. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, visit our Sponsors page to learn more and to download the pledge form, or contact us at race_information@runwithrotary.org.

We are happy to have Le Mystere/Charles Komar & Sons, Princeton Fitness & Wellness, and Princeton HealthCare System join us this year as Gold Sponsors.

Twenty One Years … And Beyond!
