The Rotary Club of Historic Brownsville will host it’s Annual Ride for Rotary Benefit Ride on October 16, 2016. The ride draws participation from cyclists of all levels and ages. Last year, we had participants from Brownsville, Weslaco, Harlingen, San Benito, South Padre Island, McAllen, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Matamoros, and Reynosa.
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.
