We are pleased to announce that the Colchester – Milton Rotary Club is organizing the 3rd annual MOVE YOUR CAN Fun Run / Walk event this summer. The event is a 5K (roughly 3 miles), and we are anticipating about 50-75 runners. The race will be family oriented and will start and finish at Bayside Park in Colchester.
The Colchester Milton Rotary Club was named Club of the Year in its District, which is composed of 42 clubs from Quebec, Northern Vermont and New Hampshire. The Club also received five other awards during their district conference held in the spring. These awards recognized the achievements the Club made in the areas of membership growth, community service projects and other Rotary International criteria.
This fun run / walk will begin at Bayside Park on the bike path in Colchester, ending back at the park. All ages welcome. Run or walk. Proceeds will help Food shelves in Colchester, Milton, and The Islands, with a portion going to the Charitable fund of the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club.
