Reno Sunrise Gives College-Branded School Supplies to all Students at Virginia Palmer Elementary School
 Next year's Edible Pedal 100® will be September 18, 2016 at Bowers Mansion in Washoe Valley.  Go to for more information.  


Welcome to the Rotary Club of Reno Sunrise! This website contains information for members and visitors on our club's activities, events, meetings and programs. It's where you can find our club member directory, eBulletins, where and when other local Rotary clubs meet, and links to our District website and Rotary International. 

We meet each Friday for breakfast, fellowship, club business, and an informative and interesting presentation from a guest speaker. We have 50 plus members with a variety of professional and managerial backgrounds. Founded in 1989, our club was the first in northern Nevada to charter with women and paved the way for the first female President in our District. Reno Sunrise, in turn, has in recent years chartered the Reno Rotaract club (18-30 year olds) and a new generations club now known as the Rotary Club of Reno, Midtown. We are community and youth service oriented, and give our time and dollars to make a positive impact in the community and the world.

A partial list of our service activities includes volunteer and/or financial support for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful, Rotary Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, the Middle School Leadership Experience, Rotary speech and music contests, middle school career coaching, Rotary Group Study Exchange, and the Rotary International End Polio Now program. We also are Partners in Education with Virginia Palmer Elementary School in the economically challenged Sun Valley area, and help with a number of programs including Read to Succeed, Back to School Shopping, Happy Feet athletic shoes, holiday season Angel Tree, Challenger Learning Center science program, and a number of playground enhancement projects.

Our major fund raiser is Edible Pedal 100 TM held each September in the Washoe Valley that consists of 10, 50 and 100 bicycle rides. This past year we had over 1,000 riders from Nevada and California. A portion of the net proceeds is contributed to Urban Roots Garden Classrooms, culinary scholarships at a number of local high schools, and to various other event support organizations. 

We have a lively and dedicated membership, and are always looking for new qualified members to help us make a difference and have fun. Visitors to meetings are always welcome, so if you're up and about early on a Friday morning please stop by.

Rotary and ShelterBox support Syrian refugees
In Syria, where a civil war has been raging since 2011, more than 6,000 people flee the country every day. As of September, more than 4.1 million people have become refugees, and 7.6 million more have been internally displaced. “The plight of Syria’s refugees is a litmus test for the world's compassion,” says Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko. “Rotary members worldwide are profoundly disheartened by the refugee crisis now unfolding in Syria and other parts of the world,” which the United Nations has described as the worst in decades. “Rotary is following the situation closely...

Under One Sky lights the way to a better world

The 17 ambitious goals constitute a road map for finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, and dovetail with Rotary members’ work to create positive change in their communities and around the world.

Nigeria declared polio-free, removed from endemic list
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on 25 September that Nigeria is now polio-free and has been officially removed from the list of countries where polio is endemic. It’s been 14 months since any cases of polio caused by the wild virus have been detected there. With Nigeria’s historic achievement, polio remains endemic in only two countries: Afghanistan and Pakistan. That means transmission of the virus has never been stopped there. Nigeria was the last country in Africa where polio was endemic. The continent celebrated its own first full year without the disease on 11 August. Once...
