Rotary, a global network of community volunteers is one of the largest and most influential international humanitarian service organizations in the world. Rotary is a leadership organization of local business, professional and civic leaders who work together to better our community and around the world.
As Nevada’s only statewide nonprofit dedicated to immunizations, Immunize Nevada saves lives by preventing disease and promoting health. Their mission ensures that people across Nevada can access vaccines, healthcare and other resources they need to stay healthy.
Please join us at the 8th annual Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run at the beautiful trails around Washoe County’s Rancho San Rafael Park on April 22, 2017 (9:00 am late registration, 10:00 am run starts). The Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run 10K and 5K run/walk will provide t-shirts with registration, a state of the art timing system service that will text message instant results, refreshments/beer truck, local business exhibits, professional photography, and a fun time for the whole family! There will be a prize for the most spirited team and medals for first place in your age bracket.
Proceeds of the event will go towards the Rotary Foundation’s Polio Plus Fund, which is dedicated to immunizing children worldwide and eradicating the deadly and crippling disease; the RCS Rotary Foundation Inc.; and Immunize Nevada. Since the inaugural Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run, $30,851 has been raised and donated toward the eradication of polio.
