Ride for Rotary 2017Posted: Updated:
The Rotary Club of Historic Brownsville will host Ride for Rotary on October 15, 2017. The event will start at 8:00 a.m. at the Brownsville Event Center, located at 1 Event Center, Brownsville, Texas 78526, and will end at Louie’s Backyard, located at 2305 Boulevard, South Padre Island, Texas 78597. The participants will cross the causeway on Highway 100 at 11:00 a.m.
This is the seventh year that Rotary will host the ride. The ride draws participation from cyclists of all levels and ages from Brownsville, San Benito, Harlingen, South Padre Island, Weslaco, Alamo, Pharr, Mission, McAllen, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio. We anticipate several hundred riders will participate in the ride this year.
All proceeds raised by the event will be used to support Rotary’s local projects, which include providing free eye exams and eyeglasses to children, hosting Rotary’s Annual Heart Gallery (an adoption awareness event), funding scholarships for local students, providing Christmas gifts to nursing home residents, and funding for other Rotary humanitarian projects.
