Not all work - fun as well!
The North Ryde eFun Run for Youth Mental Health has been a great success with over $13,000 raised.
This is one of the club's main fundraisers to support research into youth mental health through Australian Rotary Health. Funds raised also go to the Centre for Emotional Health's  Cool Kids program which is an evidence based program for school aged children struggling with anxiety. The money we donate to this program enables families to access the program who cannot otherwise afford to do so.
Funds are also set aside for some of the Rotary Youth programs we support such as RYLA and RYPEN.
A big thank you to those who walked/ran during the week and those who sponsored or donated.
Thank you to our corporate sponsors who have come on board again this year to sponsor the eFun Run:

Held in January, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award program was a wonderful experience for our representative, Bernadette Sear.  RYLA is a week long camp for 18 to 25 year olds and explores all aspects of leadership.  Bernadette had the opportunity to meet Tylah McConnell, who was a  participant from our Club several years ago and has returned each year as a leader.  Tylah has shown how powerful the RYLA experience can be and how it can affect a person's life.

At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, colour, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.
Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.
We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong.
In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.

Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non-political, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto “Service above Self”, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.


The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

•FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

•SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

•THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;

•FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.



Of the things we think, say & do:

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
