Water Missions WalkThis past Saturday, Rotarians from the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston participated in Water Missions International’s Annual Walk for Water. The funds raised will support safe water community development projects. It was a family-friendly, non-competitive event. Rotarians began their walk with an empty bucket symbolizing the trek that millions take each day to fetch water. Halfway through the walk, buckets were filled with water and the journey was completed.

He finished 32 in his age group – top 10%! This is certainly an outstanding accomplishment and we are all proud of him.

The total amount raised was $7,571.22 and with the 3.5 Rotary match, it will be $26,499.27!! For those who don’t know, an Ironman consists of 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a full 26.2 mile marathon run.

Along with this, Charleston Rotary Club Rotarian Don Oswalt will be competing in an Ironman in the beginning of November in an effort to raise funds for WMI.

From his website: I will be competing in my first Ironman Triathlon November 2nd, 2013 in Panama City Florida. Rather than just race for myself I wanted to give back and race for a purpose. I have teamed up with the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston, together we will raise money for Water Missions International. Your donated dollars will provide a water system for a village in Peru.

YOUR DONATION WILL BE MATCHED 3.5 TIMES – I am proud to say that I have been a member of the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston for the past 9 years. The great thing about Rotary is that the money you donate will be matched by the District that money will be matched by Rotary International. So your donation will be matched 3.5 times. The MORE YOU GIVE the MORE THEY GIVE!

An Ironman Triathlon is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run – a total of 140.6 miles all in the same day.
