The Rotary Club of Brookvale, volunteers behind the Beach2Beach run, support charities on the Northern Beaches and Beyond.
The Rotary Club of Brookvale is well known for organising one of the Beaches biggest fundraising events, the Beach2Beach Charity Fun Run. But in times where we cannot participate in mass events, the club finds other ways to support the community, during times where it counts even more.
When the Beach2Beach event is held, the club is able to significantly support the Northern Beaches Surf Clubs and local charities like One Eighty, Stewart House and Gotcha4Life to name a few.
But when times are tough, the club by no means sits still in finding ways to support the community. Recently the Rotary Club of Brookvale supported the Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter with a check of $2.000 (photo attached), the Manly Warringah Women’s Refuge with $10.000, Steward House with $5.000 and more commitments are made for both Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter and Manly Warringah Women’s Refuge. Beyond the Beaches the club has sent support to Indo Aid in Lombok for clean water resources and supported similar programs in the Solomon Islands and Timor Leste.
No doubt that the team at Brookvale Rotary is looking forward to the return of mass participation events with the Beach2Beach fun run now planned for 27th March 2022. Directors Phil Jackson and Robert van Geest both agree that the team is looking forward to giving it 100%, and a little more, to make the event the biggest charity fundraiser on the Beaches again.
