10th Rotary Honors Vets 5K goes VIRTUAL for 2020!
The Rotary Club of Westerville Foundation’s 10th Annual Rotary Honors Vets 5K Run/Walk will be a VIRTUAL event for 2020, with runners and walkers sent their timing devices to complete the 5K on their own within a set period of time.
Our military beneficiary of this wonderful event this year will be SEALKIDS, a special organization that provides educational aid to the children of service men and women in the Navy SEAL special forces. (More info at sealkids.org.)
Participants can complete a 5K course at the time and location of their choosing, between Nov. 5 and Nov. 12. Race manager Race Penguin will track and post times for participants as usual.
Registration is OPEN NOW and additional information available at the Columbus Race Calendar.
Full details including listings of our wonderful sponsors are available at our club’s race website, RotaryHonorsVets5k.org.
Proceeds of the event go to our Military Beneficiary and the Rotary Club of Westerville Foundation, which funds our college scholarship program for local high school graduates.
Our annual tribute to United States veterans is staged each year near Veterans’ Day, Nov. 11.
With the additional time allowed this year because the 5K is virtual, participants can complete their course anytime over a 10-day period.

Our military beneficiary for ’20: SEALKIDS
Our military beneficiary of this wonderful event this year will be SEALKIDS, a special organization that provides educational aid to the children of service men and women in the Navy SEAL special forces. (More info at SEALKIDS.org.)
Navy SEALs have a dangerous, demanding job that takes them away from home nine months of every year. Their children live in a world that few of us can comprehend. The fear of not knowing when — or if — they’ll ever see their dad alive again can cause academic, emotional, and behavioral issues that put additional stress on their families and prevent them from thriving.
SEALKIDS, through its programs, supports the children of Naval Special Warfare—everyday
kids living in extraordinary circumstances. This encompassing approach of academic testing, tutoring, therapy, advocacy, and enrichment fosters the success and well-being of the child, critically reducing family stresses and ultimately keeping today’s Navy SEAL in the fight.
With your help, we can honor the service and sacrifice of Navy SEALs and their families by working tirelessly to ensure that their children have access to the tools and opportunities they need to grow up happy, healthy, and resilient.
SEALKIDS is the only organization in the world solely focused on helping the children of Navy SEALs.
