Rotary Clubs are planning their 24th annual walk-a-thon for charity, “WALKFEST 2019," and are inviting other charitable organizations and community programs to join them and share the profits.

The event will be held on Oct. 13, 2019 at Waterloo Village in Stanhope and it aims to raise funds to help programs that aim to end hunger in New Jersey. Rotarly traditionally allows other non-profit groups to join the effort and keep 50% of the money they raise.

Youth programs, sports teams, religious groups, booster clubs, civic groups, and school clubs may participate. Each group registers with Rotary, then enlists pledges for their walkers, and enjoys a one-hour stroll in a lovely park, before receiving a check in the mail for their own program. At the same time they are aiding the work of Rotary Clubs in support of food pantry programs throughout New Jersey.

Corporate sponsors of this year’s event include Provident Bank, The Hanover Manor, Live the Lake NJ, Logan and Logan CPA, Blue Foundry Bank, Applebee's Bar & Grill and Portofino’s Restaurant in Oak Ridge.
