Description

The Rotary Club of Bal Harbour 5K Run/Walk will take place in the southeast corner of Haulover Park, a beautiful sea side park situated between Bal Harbour and Sunny Ilses Beach in the northeast corner of Miami-Dade County, Florida.  The race will occur just as the sun rises over the ocean and with a gentle sea breeze to cool you off as you run.

Proceeds from the race will go to the Rotary Club's philanthropic endeavors.   This year's proceeds are dedicated to funding a scholarship(s) for a deserving candidate(s) to the Miami Dade Police Academy.

The park's parking lots are county run and operated.   The Rotary Club of Bal Harbour derives no profit from those parking fees.   We are working with county officials to try and waive those fees for the race, but please understand while we were able to ameliorate the fees in the past, we may not be able to get those fees waived this year.   

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders founded in 1905 by Paul Harris in Chicago. Rotary club members provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas (plus a high school affiliate with 12,000 clubs in 109 countries with 275,000 members and a college affiliate with 7,500 clubs in 163 countries with 175,000 members). Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world and it is most famous for our leadership role in eliminating polio throughout the world.  The Rotary Club of Bal Harbour is a member club of this international service organization.  Our local district #6990 has 49 clubs and spans Key West to Pompano Beach and over to the Bahamas.  Our club was founded in 1953.  We currently have 13 members (though usually we get 10-12 people per breakfast meeting).  Further information about our organization may be found through our local district website at http://rotarynow.org/join-a-club-2/ or click on any or all of the tabs on the Rotary International website at  https://www.rotary.org/en/about-rotary for the who, what and why of Rotary for prospective members.
