Through the many donations made by teams and individual registrants, the Mercer Island Half supports colon cancer prevention. We also use the proceeds from event registrations to help fund many other charitable causes supported by the Foundation of the Rotary Club of Mercer Island.
Our non-profit work extends to local, regional and international levels, with particular emphasis placed on helping groups that are dedicated to serving the most in need. In the Pacific Northwest, we are particularly proud of our ongoing commitment of funding and member volunteer time to Rotary First Harvest, a clearinghouse of basic food staples distributed to food banks across the region.
