Our Major Fundraiser – Woohoomanity was held on September 24th. Thanks to the generosity of our Club 31 Members, non-Members and individual Fundraisers, the event raised $30,000 with only 6% going to expenses. Seventy Five percent of the funds go to the Denver Rotary Club Foundation. The remaining 25% of the funds will be donated to Ukraine Relief and Marshall Fire Relief. Six Club 31 bicycle riders participated in the event completing routes from 25 up to 100 miles. Club 31 had 65 members donating to support the event plus our fundraising members gathered donations from 47 friends and family donors locally and across the country. In addition, Club 31 had 21 volunteers to help staff the Rotary Hospitality Tent, Merchandise Sales, Course Marshals and the Lookout Mountain Aid Station.
The Lookout Mountain Aid Station pictured above was 100% staffed by Club 31 members and provided water, nutrition, great music and unparalleled Club 31 hospitality to over 400 riders who navigated the most challenging 100 mile course. Our honorary Co-Chairs, Rotary CEO John Hewko and his wife Marga traveled to Colorado to join the festivities and rode 85 and 50 miles respectively.
WooHoo was filled with fun and fellowship amid a perfect Colorado fall day. The DRCF sincerely thanks all who Donated, Volunteered, Fundraised and Rode their bicycles. The net result furthers our Rotary mission “to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders”. Congratulations Club 31 – We All WooHoo!
