WHO WE HELP

HELPING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

The Manly Fun Run is Manly Rotary Club’s main annual fund-raising event.
Each year we identify specific projects, raise funds for them through the fun run, and complete the work we have committed to over the next 12 months.

WHERE THE MONEY GOES

Over the past nine years through the fun run and related grants we have raised around $1.4 million.

Examples of what we have done locally include:

  • establishing and subsequently renovating the Manly (now Northern Beaches) Women’s Shelter, funding the renovation of a floor at Royal Far West to meet the Shelter’s ‘overflow’ accommodation needs, and funding the purchase of strategically important IT updating facilities
  • building a new kitchen, dining room and meeting/work area facilities for Pioneer Clubhouse Balgowlah’s facility for the psycho-social rehabilitation of people living with a mental illness, and building a new kitchen for the Salvation Army, Manly
  • providing new bathrooms for Stewart House Dee Why, completing main office area renovations for the Manly (now Northern Beaches) Community Center, and carrying out kitchen and dining area renovations at Mission Australia’s Fairlight homeless men’s shelter
  • Purchasing medical equipment for Manly Hospital; medical diagnostic equipment for use in PNG by Manly-based Australian Doctors International; much needed extra equipment for Manly Sailability’s disabled children’s learn- to-sail school; and installing a disabled swing on Manly’s ocean beachfront children’s playground
  • funding a pilot skill-building enterprise run locally by Bushlink for disabled youths, constructing and selling plant propagation equipment to schools; funding Stand Tall’s personal growth and development camps in Manly for at risk teenagers; and sponsoring numerous local teenagers on Rotary’s Youth Leadership Development programs.
