Why We Run
The Rotary Club of Bryson City is the only service club in Bryson City/Swain County. This year the money raised from the 5K will support both community and world-wide efforts like:
* Manna Food Bank and the Bryson City Food Pantry
* Qualla Swain SAFE Shelter
* Swain Family Resource Center
* End Polio Now-Rotary's 35 year campaign to eradicate polio
* Alzheimer's Research through the Rotary CART Fund
* Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
Since 1934, Rotary Club of Bryson City has supported the youth of Swain with thousands of dollars in college scholarships. In 2022 we awarded 9 Swain County students $22,000 to help further their academic journey. Rotary most recently funded the Swain County Imagination Library, but the program was funded by a grant through the Swain County School system. We recently helped with a project at the High School to provide a supply of personal hygiene products for girls.
The Rotary Club of Bryson City sponsors a high school club-Interact. This group of dynamic young people has raised money for economic opportunities for residents in other countries with the gift of domestic farm animals and sewing machines so Indian woman can become economically Independent.
This site is made possible and supported by the Rotary Club of Bryson City.
