OKTOBERFEST September 26th at Laurel Hill County Park

Oktoberfest Logo 2013The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club (ECBR) will host its annual charity run on September 26th beginning at Laurel Hill County Park.  The Oktoberfest 5K Run-Walk is a Saturday run with an authentic German Band and a Bavarian Beer Garden to welcome participants to the finish line. This event supports the club’s fundraising efforts for the following charities: ECBR will team up with the local Marine Reserves Unit again this year in their Annual ECBR Toys for Tots Bike Drive.  In the past these bikes were purchased through ECBR member donations only. A small club of 50, ECBR has donated over 2000 bikes since this initiative began. On top of what the club raises this year, proceeds from the Oktoberfest 5K Run-Walk will be used to support this cause to raise even more money to buy bikes for children here in the Lowcountry.

In addition to Toys for Tots, our club sponsors the Happy Feet Rotary Program by providing funds for many Lowcountry school age children to purchase a pair of shoes at no cost to the child. Some of the children depend on this program each year to fill the need.
