Around District  9800

The Rotary Walk With Us campaign throughout October is a fun way to raise awareness and funds to End Polio Now.  

Using Rotary’s friendly website (, you can register to walk, set your distance and fundraising goals. Alternatively, you can donate to someone who is walking.

For the walkers the total distance you have set for the month is accumulated over the entire month of October. So, you can walk when, where and with whom you want in a COVID safe way.

Each walk is logged on the website along with all donations. It’s easy. Register to walk and donate at  

The District Foundation Committee is once again inviting District 9800 clubs to participate in the Year 11-12 Scholarship Program.

Ten Year 11-12 Scholarship Grants will be made available this year for clubs to offer to local schools for the 2022-2023 school years. The grant of $1,000 will match your club’s contribution of $1,000 to provide the scholarship over the two-year period.

When newly recruited Rotarian Danielle Schutte mentioned her employer KPMG’s commitment to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals over breakfast with PP Melissa McIntosh, she could not have anticipated the enthusiastic support of DG Dale Hoy, DGN Ron Payne and a duly constituted team of Assistant Governors and Presidents of Clubs.
