Latest News and Announcements
For the second year, the Rotary Club of Los Angeles Foundation is supporting a team of 15 runners to participate in the 2018 LA Marathon. Funds raised by the team will be donated to the End Polio Now Campaign. The runner fees are covered by our foundation however we do have a $10,000 goal we need to reach or ideally exceed. We currently have 7 runners with room to cover 8 more. Anyone can donate or even start their own donation page.  If anyone is interested in running, they can connect directly with Rotary Club of Los Angeles President Charisse Older or District Rotaract Representative Chris Reyes.  The Marathon takes place on March 18, 2018 starting at Dodger Stadium and ending in Santa Monica. It would be amazing to get clubs from across LA to participate and brand Rotary throughout the course. Learn More. 
In January 2017, over 100 Rotarians from District 5280 traveled to Merida, Mexico (Yucatan Peninsula) to make a difference. Among the many service projects, our Rotarians planted trees, rehabilitated a rural elementary school, volunteered at a diabetes clinic, provided musical instruments to an after school program, provided kitchen appliances and supplies to a special needs school, and so much more. Watch the video to see how Rotary is making a difference. 
As part of the Rotary Club of Westchester's Global Grant project with Safe Place For Youth (S.P.Y.), the club is looking to connect Rotarians with homeless youth for mentoring, internships, and job placement.
