Running for a Cause…and Pancakes!
The Rotary Club of Celebration presents the 21st Annual Pancake Run and Breakfast Fundraiser taking place Saturday, October 26, 2019. The run includes a 10k race, a 5k race and a short kids-only run, through the town of Celebration, FL. All ages and skill levels are welcome to join.
The first Rotary Club of Celebration Pancake Fundraiser started as a humble pancake breakfast that attracted local residents. Over the years it has grown into an official chip-timed race, administered by Strider Events. And, as we approach the 21st annual fundraiser, the race is attracting runners from all over the country and the world. Runners from Germany, the UK and the Netherlands are currently signed up.
Over the years, this fundraiser has raised over $500,000 for local, national and international service projects. The team behind the event consist of Celebration Rotarians, Interact Clubs, police and other volunteers. The goal is to donate funds to local deserving organizations. This year’s beneficiaries are: Help Now of Osceola, Samaritan Village, and the Community Hope Center.
Runners receive an exclusive Pancake Run finisher medal and shirt. An awards ceremony will take place with additional plaques and medals for overall winners. At the finish line, runners are welcomed to a hot pancake breakfast, a kids’ area, and exciting raffles, sponsor tents and a live DJ.
This community fundraiser could not take place without the generous contributions of the sponsors. Title sponsor: Advent Health Celebration. Platinum sponsor: Carroll Bradford Roofing. Gold sponsors: Arete Lifestyles by Demetri, Hilb Group, MD Cabinetry, Peak Chiropractic. Specialty sponsors: Morgan Stanley, Seacoast Bank.

The Rotary Club of International Drive
The Rotary Club of International Drive - Orlando ended the month of July with great excitement as Rotarians from this club welcomed Rotary Youth Exchange students at Orlando International Airport on Tuesday, July 30th. Club President Terrill Booker, Secretary Chris Evans and half a dozen members of the I-Drive Club were present to cheer and welcome Mori who arrived from Taiwan and Marla from Austria. Both will be spending a year with Host Families and get to enjoy the experience of a lifetime as they discover the opportunity to grow their minds and knowledge as sponsored RYE students. And the best part is that DG Cindi Cioci joined us in the celebration of the start of a new adventure for these two young ladies.
