HEALTH INITIATIVES

The Rotary Club of the Bronx has instituted a new committee which is involved with raising awareness and funds for specific health issues.

The first initiative was the Club's participation in the "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk at Orchard Beach in the Bronx on October 17, 2009. A team of 8 represented the Club at the walk and the Club collectively met our goal of raising $1,000. All the funds raised in the Bronx at this walk, stay in the Bronx to assist those fighting and surviving breast cancer.

Initiatives planned for the future include the Colon Cancer Challenge walk in Central Park, with a team leader Albert Ferro and the Find a Cure walk for cystic fibrosis, with team leader Rev. Susan Chadwick.
