Our speaker on Oct 26th is Carolyn Martyn
Carolyn is a wellness-warrior in every sense of the word.  Inspiring people of all ages to be the best version of themselves both in life and health, and she has used the struggles with her own personal health to fuel her huge passion to help inspire and motivate others to do all they can for their long term health. As a Health Coach, Life Coach, Personal Trainer and Speaker Carolyn has over 30 years in the world of Health and Wellness and an extensive amount of certifications from both American Council on Exercise and Canfitpro. She also serves as a director on the Board for The Agape Foundation, that keeps her up-to-date with Community Organizations and Charities. Carolyn is also known in her Community for connecting others, her authenticity and inspiration. For showing clients the “how” in doable, actionable steps and for not being afraid to put events out to the Community with the goal of helping others achieve (she created “Bring It Impact Events in 2014 for exactly this: helping young girls to gain confidence). This is Carolyn’s goal moving forward. Her new Programming “Stress Better” is underway so she can help people learn how to deal with the challenges we not only are going through now - but to apply this to any challenge in the future.

---ROTARY EVENTS THIS WEEKEND---

The Rotary Club of London “End Polio Now!” Run-Walk-athon

In honour of World Polio Day, which is the 28th of this month, we will be holding The Rotary Club of London “End Polio Now!” Run-Walk-athon, a 15 kilometer event, this Saturday, October 24th. Rotary has been working on eradicating polio for the last 4 decades and we are almost there.  Today there are just 2 countries left with the wild poliovirus. Our Run-Walk-athon will be a fundraiser for Rotary’s PolioPlus Fund. Every dollar raised is matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Members participating on October 24th will be doing the walk-run individually, not in a group. Our Team currently has 5 members (President Dianne, Keith Morrow, Danielle Bork, John Stuart, and Jim Belton) who will be participating in the Run-Walk-athon on the 24th. Your support would be very much appreciated. Please check out our event at:
