Join The Rotary Club of Cleveland School at our Second Annual "Run for Rotary" event on April 15th, 2023. Our 5K event this year will benefit Johnston County Parks and Open Spaces. 50% of proceeds/donations will go directly to the Johnston County Parks and Open Space Program and 50% will remain with our Rotary Club to fund various service projects within our Cleveland School Community. Service projects that we have done and do throughout the year range from collecting and delivering food to local food pantries, donating supplies for toiletry bags for local homeless shelters, "Stockings for Seniors" at Christmastime that are delivered to Senior Living Facilities, to building a playground at a domestic violence shelter for children who need a safe place to enjoy the outdoors, and so much more!
