Rotary welcomes all potential Rotary Charity Fundraisers
to the 2015 Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events
At each of the four Ironman events covered by the Rotary / Ironman charity partnership as many as 150 Rotarians and maybe more from Rotary clubs in the district around each event will be involved. They will be carrying out stewarding and marshalling as well as giving support to the athletes alongside the Ironman team to ensure the smooth running of the events. All are volunteers and give up their time to support the Rotary Charity Fundraisers taking part in particular as well as all the other athletes in general.
Rotary is a worldwide voluntary organisation with over 1.2m members in over 200 countries. There are over 55,000 members in 1,850 clubs in Rotary in Britain and Ireland alone.
In 2014 members from over 20 Rotary clubs assisted at Ironman UK and Ironman 70.3 UK on a voluntary basis. A vital part of the charity partnership with Ironman is the part played by Rotary Charity Fundraisers. Over the past 10 years Rotary Charity Fundraisers have raised over £770,000 for charities and good causes. Being a voluntary organisation and a registered charity Rotary is able to see that a maximum amount of the funds raised, including Gift Aid, goes to the five nominated Rotary/Ironman UK charity causes and Rotary Charity Fundraisers nominated charities.
Rotary and the Ironman event organisers have committed themselves, in a unique charity partnership, to help those less fortunate than ourselves by raising funds for charitable causes.
