Rotary's Purple Pinkie 5K/10K
In addition to MSR supporting the Rotary's Purple Pinkie 5K/10K as sponsors, President Cheryl has challenged our club to not only be involved by making our annual gift of $1500 toward the Polio Plus effort through them to multiply its benefit, but also that we field a team to participate in the event.
 
If you can not make it to the event, please donate any amount to the cause. This will support KOA who will walk for MSR in your honor!

Dear District 7430 Rotarians,
 
If you haven’t already signed up, you can sign up on race-day, October 14!  Registration starts at 8AM.  Come and join us for 7th Yvette M. Palmer Purple Pinkie 5K Run/1 Mile Fun Walk on Saturday at Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schnecksville, PA.   This is a District-Wide event.  Every Dollar Raised will be TRIPLED by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
 
You don’t need to run to participate.  Most people walk!  It will be a fun morning.  Bring your family and friends.  We will have awards for the race winners and also many drawings for door prizes, so both runners and walkers will be winners.  We will also have great food!  We are planning to have polio survivors at the race to talk to participants about her experiences with polio.   
 
The race-day cost to participate is $35 ($25 if under 18).  Come on out and have a great time for a great cause!
