The Manly Rotary Club are again opening the streets of Manly for the 9th annual Manly Scenic Fun Run on Sunday 3rd June at 8am, starting and finishing on the beach-front opposite the Corso.
We hope the whole community will join us in raising funds for our local charities. All of the money collected by us for the Fun Run goes to local charities & Rotary humanitarian projects. Over the last 9 years we are proud to say we have raised over $1.5million for these purposes.
Some of our past initiatives have included:
- Establishing the Manly Women’s Shelter
- Building work – a new kitchen, dining and meeting/work area facilities for Pioneer Clubhouse and a new kitchen for the Salvation Army
- Refurbishing projects - the bathrooms at Stewart House, the main office area at the Manly Community Center, the kitchen and dining areas at Mission Australia’s homeless men’s shelter
- Purchasing - much needed extra equipment for Sailability, our disabled children’s learn- to-sail school and medical equipment for Manly Hospital.
This year we will use our Fun Run proceeds to support a number of specific youth-related programs and projects. They include refurbishing a scout hall, supporting a camp for ‘at risk’ teenagers, and supporting disabled youngsters in a new business enterprise. In addition, we are aiming to sponsor a number of youth leadership development programs.
All ages and levels of fitness are welcome whether you run the 10km or walk the 2km or 5km. Full details on the website http://www.manlyfunrun.org/ and follow the prompts to register.
