Richmond Rotarians help SOS Children’s Village

Editor:

On Sunday, May 25th, the Rotary Club of Richmond led a dynamic and passionate volunteer team and presented the sixth annual SOS Children’s Village B.C. Run & Walk, held at the spectacular Richmond Olympic Oval Plaza. While pledges continue to come in and the total is not finalized, the amount raised by this event is looking to top $27,000.

Without the leadership of the Rotary Club of Richmond, and their President Ken Dennis, this event would never have happened. Due to several challenges we were on the brink of cancelling our sixth annual Run & Walk; however being the true exemplars of Rotary’s motto - “Service Above Self” - Ken and his team stepped in at the eleventh hour, revitalizing our wonderful run committee, and producing our most successful run ever.

The Richmond Rotarians can rest assured that their overflowing good humour, hard work, and outstanding efforts will allow us at SOS B.C. to deliver desperately needed services and support to British Columbian foster children. On their behalf, and all of us at SOS B.C., our most heartfelt thanks to President Ken and his fellow Rotarians!
