Rotarians At Play

 
 
Rotarians are busy, busy people.  This doesn’t stop them from wanting to continue to support others.  A quick, efficient, low cost project is greeting cards.  It’s fun, impactful to the recipient, completed during the Rotary meeting and enhances member engagement.  The Rotarians at Coquitlam Sunrise decided to make Halloween cards for the seniors at Hawthorne lodge.  Huge smiles on all the residents as they feel loved

Tri-Cities Rotary Clubs Effort to Help Eradicate Polio World Wide


In recognition of World Polio Day on October 24th, members from the four local Rotary Clubs in the Tri Cities area joined together at a recent pub night fundraiser to support Rotary International's Global Polio Eradication campaign.  Around the world, Rotarians have pledged to raise $150 million dollars(US) over the next 3 years.  Almost $700 was raised at the event.  Through the Rotary International Foundation all Polio funds raised are matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which means the total will grow to nearly $2100.  The Government of Canada has also pledged another $75 million towards the final push to keep children everywhere around the world free from the terrible effects of this preventable disease.
Rotary’s Amazing Race – We’re Canadian Eh?
 
 
 
 
The Amazing Race this year had 27 teams out enjoying the amazing array of activities (over 30 stops throughout the Tri-Cities!) that challenged their mind, body and spirit.
Since its inception in 1981, the Rotary Club of Coquitlam Sunrise has been involved in service activities as diverse as helping pack bags at the local food bank, filling containers with supplies for Africa, developing a local Amazing Race, refurbishing a women's shelter, and gardening at Eagle Ridge Hospital as well financially supporting these organizations along with many more and some amazing International projects. It’s event like the Amazing Race that allow us to accomplish these valuable community commitments.
 
We look forward to an even bigger and better 2018 Amazing Race!
 
A HUGE THANK YOU to our Sponsors.
