“We are thrilled to be working together with the Liberty High School Interact Club to raise money for two incredibly important projects,” said Gary Silver, President of the Liberty Rotary Club. “Half of the proceeds from this event will go towards the Liberty Rotary Club’s Haiti Clean Water Program, which is providing 1,000 water filtration systems to 1,000 families. The other half of the proceeds will go towards the Spring Valley Rotary Club’s S.T.E.P. (Schools To End Poverty) Program, which help build and supply schools around the world. As the President of the Liberty Rotary Club, I am so proud of the students who are members of the Liberty High School Interact Club, whose enthusiasm and dedication in wanting to help others gives me hope for the future.”

The student members of the Interact Club developed the Race for Others 5k as a way to bring together members of the community to spread awareness of a good cause. Participants in the 5K will start and finish at the Liberty High School located at 125 Buckley Street in Liberty, NY. Walkers will start at 8:30 a.m. and Runners will begin at 9:00 a.m. Refreshments and light breakfast will be served for all participants.
