The Rotary Club of Westerville Presents......... 
Rotary Honors Veteran's 5K Walk/Run

Welcome to Our Event!

The Rotary Club of Westerville is excited to offer the community a new venue for coming together and celebrating our brave men and women of the military.

We are proud to announce our annual Rotary Honors Veterans 5K Walk/Run. This is a family oriented 5K Walk/Run for adults and children that will honor our Veterans.

Mission: The mission of the Rotary Honors Veterans 5K Walk/Run is "To honor, celebrate and recognize those Veterans that have provided the ultimate 'Service Above Self' commitment by serving and giving of themselves to our country."  Each year our race committee will select a different local Veteran's organization to be a beneficiary of this event.
Beneficiary: Team Red, White, and Blue (RWB) has been selected as the 2013 charitable beneficiary. The mission of Team RWB is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Team Red, White & Blue is rooted in the belief that the best way to support veterans is by spending time with them, listening to them, and supporting them in personal and meaningful ways. 
The Columbus Chapter establishes local programs that provide consistent opportunities for veterans to meet other veterans and members of their community through activities like running, cycling, CrossFit, picnics and ball games. For more information on Team RWB please visit their website.
