Now in its 11th year; Manly Fun Run, a Rotary Club of Manly project, has raised over $1.5m for local charities.

How do we do it?

As soon as the Fun Run finishes we start planning for the next year!

The Rotary Club of Manly is a small group of around 20 volunteers who get together to hear from speakers, discuss new projects and plan.

It takes a lot of work to bring the Fun Run together so we heavily rely on volunteers inside and outside the Club. 

These days, we meet on Zoom each Tuesday morning at 6:45am. If you want to get involved and help the local community, come along. 

If you're a charity that needs help, come and present to the Club, we love to hear about all the wonderful work that's happening and we might be able to help you with a project too.

Hear from interesting speakers

Throughout the year we hear from interesting speakers, sometimes educational, sometimes inspiring!

Make decisions on projects

The board makes the decisions on which projects we fund. Join the club to have a say.

Help organise the Fun Run

The Fun Run is no small task, with around 2,500 participants and over 100 volunteers to organise, your help will be much appreciated!

Network with local business leaders

Many of our Club members are pioneers and leaders of industry. Within the Club, you can find mentorship and advice from members who have been there and done that.

Get involved

If you want a chat about the Rotary, whether to find out more about the Club or to come along to one of our meetings, get in touch. 

If you've got a project that needs funds and want to present to us then let us know too!
