About this fundraiser:

"...to whom much is given; from them more is required" (Luke 12:48)

Escondido Rotary Foundation gives away 30,000 to 40,000 dollars in grants to organizations like Meals-On-Wheels, Salvation Army's food bank, Interfaith Community Services, and other local non-profits that provide essential services to those in need. By doing that we change lives, put smiles on people's faces, and deliver food to financially challenged families in Escondido.

Everyone is welcome to join us! Hike along for a great cause. You can register by clicking on the "add participant" link at the bottom of the page (after the list of participants).
