Centennial Rotary rises to the Woohoomanity challenge

I invite you to join the Rotary Club of Centennial, along with the rest of the Denver area Rotary Clubs on Saturday, September 25 for the Woohoomanity Challenge.  The "Woohoo" takes advantage of the Charitable Affiliate program of the renowned Denver Century Ride, to turn one of the top outdoor events in America into a brilliant fundraising opportunity.


The Woohoo offers several ways to participate:

1. Ride in the Denver Century.  Choose a route from a comfortable 25 miles to the more challenging 50, 85, or full 100 miles.

2. Volunteer at the Denver Century.  You're badly needed for rest stops, course marshals, and much more.

3. Do It Yourself any time.  Get creative -- alone or with friends, at home or in town, why not hike, Peloton or skateboard.

4. Simply Fundraise or Donate.  Everyone can do this and the need is great.  Rotarians "make a difference" and you can help.

According to Centennial Rotary Club President, Trip Butler, "our Club already has 18 members and supporters on board.   8 will be riding in the Century and the rest will be fundraising and volunteering.  What a great way to spend a beautiful day with 2000 of your closest friends."  The Rotary Club of Centennial has already raised $1725 towards their $5000 goal.  How does the Centennial Rotary Club use the funds it raises from events like this?  To name a few:  

1. Ready, Set, Crawford, where we filled 75 backpacks with school supplies for 75 second graders at Crawford Elementary School.  

2. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, an international effort to promote a love of reading and to combat childhood illiteracy.

3. WaterRico, an international effort to provide safe and clean drinking water options to less developed or crisis-ravaged countries.

Butler also added, "there's plenty of space for more Rotarians to sign up.  This is just what Rotarians do, we work hard and have fun".
