Thank you, Jim Hunt, for the update on Fast for Hope.
Fast for Hope has been around since the ’70s. It is unique to our district.
It is called Fast for Hope because initially, clubs would forgo one meal each year and the monies for that meal would go to Fast for Hope. Now clubs do a variety of activities including one that has an NCAA basketball pool they call Hoops for Hope.
Money can be spent as we would like, not tied to Rotary Foundation restrictions. In past years funded fistula hospital in Ethiopia, feeding program in Haiti, Books for Africa and water wells in Haiti as just a few examples.
