Introducing a New 5k Event!

The Rotary Club of McHenry will be hosting its inaugural Rotary 5K Run for Youth Leadership on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at Petersen Park in McHenry, Illinois at 7:00 PM.

Providing Local Scholarships

Did you know... when you participate in our 5K Run for Youth Leadership, you help provide opportunities for local students? Proceeds from this event create college and vocational scholarships for McHenry and Johnsburg High School graduates and support Rotary youth programs like RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) and Youth Exchange.

Student Involvement

We are proud of the contributions that McHenry High School District 156 students have made to help this event. They play an instrumental role in the planning and preparation of the 5K. Hardworking and committed students created our logo and are responsible for completing the screen-printing process of hundreds of shirts from the lab at East Campus. This process includes ordering, taking inventory, screen set up and design, screening each shirt by hand, shop clean up, and final inventory. This collaborative effort between school and community is providing students with hands-on, practical experience where the skills they acquired in their course work are put on display.
