About ARHsport

CHRIS EDWARDS

City2Surf Legend
& Ambassador Australian Rotary Health

ARHsport is a new physical and mental health initiative of Australian Rotary Health (ARH) spearheaded by City2Surf Legend and Australian Rotary Health Ambassador, Chris Edwards.

 

Five intended outcomes of the ARHsport initiative:

  • Demonstrate and promote health and fitness among Rotarians, Rotaractors and the wider community,
  • Provide an opportunity for Rotarians to engage with community in a social exercise or sporting environment.
  • Create greater visibility of Rotarians engaging in sport and exercise within local communities through the supply of a range of striking ARHsport clothing.
  • Fundraise for research into effect of exercise and fellowship on brain function and mental health.
  • Develop a directory of sporting events that are owned or run by Rotary Clubs and to help clubs to promote their events.

We need representatives in Clubs across the country to help bring this initiative into life.

If your are a member of a Rotary Club and this sounds like something you’d like to get involved with, you may like to be your Club ARH Champion. If so, Please indicate your interest here and we’ll keep in you up to date as the program develops.

 

Role and Process of ARHsport Club Champions:

  • Each club should appoint an ‘ARHsport Champion’. This person’s role is to make up a team of six or more people from their club and/or their community.
  • For each person on the team, a one time donation of $100 should be made to ARH. (This can come from the club or the members) In return each team member will receive an ARHsport polo shirt depicting the sport of their choice, (and other bonus items if available). Other sporting gear will also be introduced for particular promotions and events.
  • All team members are required to engage in a regime of weekly physical activity such as walks, runs, bike rides etc. depending on the interests of each group.
  • All ARHsport participants will receive regular fitness and exercise encouragement, tips and support throughout the year via a this website, and email newsletter and Facebook Group.
  • ARHsport team members may choose to raise sponsorship for different sporting or physical activities that they undertake. Group donations to ARH will be rewarded with a variety of incentives supplied by corporate donors.
  • We want en-mass entry of ARHsport participants wearing ARHsport shirts in Rotary run sporting events and high profile activities such as the Sydney City2Surf.

The Original; Sydney City2Surf  — Rotarians were there right from the beginning in 1971 to establish this as a world class event. In fact it set the standard by which all others were judged. And Rotarians and Rotary Clubs have been working behind the scenes ever since.

Many of the event management practices we take for granted these days were introduced at the City2Surf; such as the concept of paying community groups for the number of volunteer hours spent helping manage the event. (This idea came from a Rotarian in 1971).
