Local Rotary Club of Westerville Hosts “Rotary Honors Veterans 5K Walk/Run” Supporting the National Nonprofit SEALKIDS

Columbus, OH, September 25, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Join The Rotary Club of Westerville from Thursday, November 5th until Tuesday, November 10th in the Rotary Honors Veterans Virtual 5k Walk/Run. The mission behind the Rotary Honors Veterans 5k Walk/Run hosted by the Rotary Club of Westerville is,“To honor, celebrate and recognize those Veterans that have provided the ultimate 'Service Above Self' commitment by serving and giving of themselves to our country.”

Each year the Rotary Club of Westerville chooses one beneficiary and this year they have chosen to support the national nonprofit, SEALKIDS. 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.

“The Rotary Club of Westerville has a long history of supporting veteran organizations, and once we discovered the amazing and individualized program SEALKIDS provides the children of Naval Special Warfare, we immediately wanted to get involved. SEALKIDS is the only organization in the world solely focused on helping the children of Navy SEALs, and we are privileged to support this very impactful organization.” -Tom Shaver, Past President, Rotary Club of Westerville
