Rotary International Convention from Atlanta Georgia (Aired on October 21, 2017 and October 22, 2017)

Atlanta 2017 Rotary Convention, part 4 (Aired on October 21 & 22, 2017)

Some 35,000 Rotarians from around the world came to the Atlanta Rotary Convention, but somehow the RadioRotary team of Jonah Triebwasser, Sarah O’Connell, and Kathy and Dave Kruger keep running into Rotarians from back home, including District 7210 Governor Jim Damiani and a Past President of
Jonah’s Red Hook Club, Sue Simon. The RadioRotary team also learned of fascinating projects from other American Rotarians, including the prospect of even more collaboration between Rotary International and the U.S. Peace Corps and a vision screening projct for elementary schools undertaken by the Cincinnati
Rotary. The Chicago Far North Rotary is working to bring specialized water carriers, called hippos, from South Africa to places in Haiti that lack access to running water.

Rotary International Convention from Atlanta Georgia (Aired on September 23,rd & 24th, 2017

Atlanta Rotary Convention, Part 2 (Aired on September 23 and 24, 2017)
RadioRotary interviewers at the 2017 International Rotary Convention in Atlanta,
Georgia, interviewed several project leaders attending the convention. In this broadcast, you can learn about Project Chimps from Lindsay Vanderhoogt, the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) from Rotarian Knut Johnsen (Greater Newburgh), the Russia-United States Intercountry Committee from Rotarian Charles Heberie; Rotaplast from Rotarian Donna Lee Young Rubin (PSG District 7930, Andover, MA), and the Rotarian Action Group for Hepatitis Eradication (a.k.a. Hepatitis Zero). Project Chimps put former laboratory chimpanzees into retirement in a wooded section of Georgia; RLI teaches Rotarians how to be better in their Rotary lives; the Russia-United State Intercountry Committee promotes peace between the two nations; Rotaplast provides plastic surgery to children (mainly) with cleft palate; and Hepatitis Zero is taking a specially equipped truck around the world to test individuals for hepatitis C, which now can be medically cured.

Adventures and Running with FitFeet (Aired on August 19 and 20, 2017)
RadioRotary interviews Kyle Irwin, who went from the Peace Corps and a career in microfinance to found FitFeet Adventures, a unique Rhinebeck-based corporation that focuses on the environment, philanthropy, and running and hiking for everyone from individuals to groups. Locally FitFeet runs 5K races, 10K races, and full and half marathons to support various local and national charities, including a 2017 walk-or-run at Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park. The “adventures” part comes with specially designed tours of Peru, Chile, and Argentina, some incorporating major races in Patagonia. The Explore Peru Teen Adventure combines language immersion, volunteer work for charities, visits to cultural sites, and a multi-day trek through the Andes Mountains to Machu Picchu. By partnering with nonprofits such as Awamaki, which helps women and rural families in a Peruvian Village lift themselves out of poverty, and the Rainbow Children Foundation, FitFeet Adventures is far more than just a specialized travel agency.
