Students and Youth

Rotary's programs for students & youth can change the lives. Through these programs, young people can earn scholarships, travel on cultural exchanges, or help a community through a service project.

Who are Rotarians?

Something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbours in need. We build, support, & organise. We save lives. We work locally & globally.

The Rotary Foundation

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Luton North 10km Charity Run

thumb_stroke asoc logo sample 3.jpg

Luton North are organising a 10 kilometre  charity run on Sunday September 14th. at 10.30am, over bridlepaths footpaths and trails in open country in the beautiful countryside under Warden Hills on the Eastern edge of Luton, starting and finishing at the Regional Sports Centre, Stopsley, Luton.

The club is hoping to raise £15,000 from runner's entry fees and sponsorship with half of the money raised going to The Stroke Association and the rest to the Rotary Youth Trust for Luton and other Rotary charities.

Runners raising £150 will go in to a free draw for an adventure experience, and second prize is a water colour painting by Ron Wright, a Rotarian and well-known local artist.
The top fundraiser will be offered a top class prize of a weekend use of a Porsche Boxster supplied by Premier Bodyshops, part of the Ludlows of Luton group. (some limitations will apply). The alternative prize is £100 cash.

porsche-boxster-s-2005-800x600.jpgThere are sports vouchers for the first three males and females, a trophy for teams of three, spot prizes including dinner for two, and free tee shirts for all runners. The venue offers free car parking, six changing rooms with eight showers in each, secure baggage store, refreshments and bar. There are good road and rail services, with buses from Luton to within 800 metres of the venue.

Our club is very keen to make this a great Rotary success, running clubs within a 40 mile radius have been contacted via Runner's World and by post and e.mail, and local industry has been invited to help by promoting entries from their own staff. Apart from their knowledge of their local running clubs, Rotary Clubs in our district will almost certainly know a lot of people who may be prepared to run for charity and raise money for a good cause, and we would like to ask their support by passing the details of our event to potential participants. Entry is easy, just go to www.luton-north-stroke10k.co.uk and pay by credit card via Paypal. Supporters who want to sponsor the runner can give their donation in the same way.

If runners want to enter by post, write to John Cook at 209 Sharpenhoe Road, Streatley, Luton. LU3 3PR. Tel. 01582-881695.

This is an ambitious project and deserves to succeed in providing very worthwhile causes with substantial sums of money, and with the concerted effort of clubs in 1260 I'm sure it will be a rip roaring success.
