Stories

On January 27, 2021, the Vinings Cumberland Rotary Club gathered virtually to celebrate its donation of over $100,000 to 17 charities specifically targeting children's projects. All this raised by a 66-member Rotary Club with money during the pandemic in the August 2020 Vinings Down Hill 5K run for the Kids. 

Grant recipients included the Good Samaritan Health Center, Calvary Children's Home, American Red Cross, Arts Bridge Foundation, Atlanta Union Mission, Bankhead Boys Association, Breakthrough Atlanta, Canine Companions, Girls on the Run, Hero for Children, Kate's Club, Kenrod, Inc, Kyle Pease Foundation, LaAmistad, Lekotek of Georgia, MUST Ministries and Youth Villages. 

The money was raised by individual and corporate sponsors  and featured the 2020 Charles Heinz Memorial Sponsorship, honoring the late founder and director of the race with over $58,000 of the total grant funds.

Over 350 runners from all over the Atlanta area, across the USA and around the world (including former GRSP and Rotary Youth Exchange students) ran on their own, logged their time and sent their information into Race Chair Jolene Northrop. For 24 years, the race has always been an hands-on 5K race run by hundreds of Rotarians and volunteers in Vinings, a village across the Chattahoochee River northwest of Atlanta. This year, the race was almost complete cancelled because of the COVID pandemic. Instead, it was a record breaking success because of the persistent hard work of Jolene and her committee - Co-Chair Ann Hudgins, Sponsor Chair Betty Smith, Race Administrator Terri Hilderhoff, Grant Chair Steve Hughes, Paul Harris,, Kathy Gacutan and others.

The club's next race will be in August 2021- hopefully welcoming the typical 1500 runners live as in person in Vinings as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. The legacy of the Charles Heinz Memorial Sponsorship of 2020 will continue to contribute to its success.

 

Our new Club's meeting space will be the Cobb Chamber of Commerce facilities next to Truist Park, once our "in-person" meetings resume.  We will update that information here, when available.

The Vinings Cumberland Rotary Club recently made a generous contribution to the Cobb County Fire Benevolent Fund in honor of the late Vinings firefighter, Stacey Boulware. Stacey suffered a fatal heart attack while working at the station last summer. Shift C, Lt. J. T. Gregory, said his team is still mourning the loss of such a popular firefighter who died suddenly at age 46, while all her teammates where trying to revive her.
 
We were honored to have Stacey's parents fly in for this event.
