Building on Past Success

The Rotary AIDS Poker Walk, conceived and refined by Rotarians, has been run for 3 consecutive years in Belleville with astounding success and community participation.

Over $120,000 has already been raised by one club alone

...towards the war on AIDS, saving countless lives and rebuilding ravaged communities in Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Haiti. Proceeds have also gone towards Ontario AIDS support organizations, including The Philip Aziz Centre, Casey House, HARS (Eastern Ontario) and others.

Why should my Rotary Club participate?

At a fraction of the effort required to conceive, organize, refine and carry out a club-specific fund-raising project, participation will gain your club a significant budget that you can direct towards the local or international projects that you decide will best benefit women, children and men infected or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Rotary Team 2008

The pent-up support within your local community will surprise you. To date, over 90% of funds have been donated by non-Rotarians. Rotary is trusted to do the right thing – and we will.

How will the donations be collected?

Each Rotary Club creates its own Teams, 8 Walkers per team, usually led by a Rotarian. Each Walker invites their friends, family, and colleagues to sponsor them. Invitations easily sent by email with a link to the Walker’s personal page (easily created from example text, photo optional). Donations can be made securely, online. Hard-copy (printed) donation sheets can also be used instead.

Donations Process

Will donors receive tax receipts?

Yes – all donations of $20.00 or more will receive an instant, CRA-approved, tax receipt which they can print out themselves. Donors submitting cheques or cash can also be issued printed tax receipts.

How will we get started?

Your club will be provided with access to set up and manage your own Teams and Walkers through the event web site. Once your board has authorized your participation and you’ve formed your club’s “RTA” committee, a hands-on “how-to” workshop for your club will get you started. Assign one or two of your members to sit on the on the District action committee.

Ongoing support for clubs will be available to assist you in maximizing your success.
