Entrants obtain sponsorship and designate which registered charity they wish to receive 50 per cent of the money they raise. The other 50 per cent will go to local Rotary club charities. The total amount of sponsorship money raised for charity from the first event last year was �5,500 and this year the club are aiming to triple that amount.
