Ardmore Rotary Club’s 5K-1-Mile “Race Around the Square,” held in May each year, raises substantial funds for various projects and programs benefitting local veterans who have selflessly served our nation. This exciting event brings out scores of runners – and walkers – who compete for awards and prizes and for pride over a 5K course laid out around and through Suburban Square in Ardmore. Rotarians and their families participate in the event as runners, walkers, and workers and work to make sure everyone has fun and remains safe. We partner with CertaPro Painters of the Main Line and its volunteers. In addition to our working the event together, we procure event sponsors, whose great generosity provides support to organizations like Counsel for Relationships and Greater Philadelphia Veterans Network. These organizations provide important counseling and career services to veterans and their families who must deal with serious challenges at difficult times in their lives.
