Relay4Life 2015

UNF Rotaract once again participated in Relay4Life, where we had at least one member from our team walking around the track at UNF Coxwell Amphitheater for 12 hours!!! This year’s theme was Disney, so of course we had a blast decorating and choosing our theme! For Rotaract, we chose “Tangled” as our Disney movie theme and for our product to sell and raise funds for cancer funding and research, we decided to make some delicious pancakes with chocolate milk.  It was an absolute blast and we can’t wait for next year!!

Paint the Bin, UNF Homecoming 2015

As part of this year’s Homecoming Week, one of the many fun activities that clubs could participate in this year involved painting a trash bin that creatively shows the uniqueness and purpose of each club at UNF.  Here are a few looks at our bin painted by our amazing members!

Stop Hunger Now 2015

Once again, UNF Rotaract participated with Fletcher High School in the annual event Stop Hunger Now.  The goal is to end world hunger by packaging meals to send to families across the world.  This year, UNF Rotaract along with dozens of other volunteers packaged over 28,000 meals in less than 2 hours! We tremendously enjoy this event every year and we already can’t wait till next year.

Angels for Allison

A group of us volunteered at Angels for Allison and we had an absolutely amazing time!! The story behind this non-profit organization is truly beautifully tragic, but out of the loss of a family’s beautiful daughter came a beautiful organization with a mission to reach out and help families and parents who have experienced the tragic loss of a child.  They will be featured in our Light Up the World Festival on April 6th, so anyone in the Jacksonville area can find them at UNF on that date!

Beyond Face Value: Sara Gaver, TED Talk

Last month, one of our most inspiring members of UNF Rotaract, Sara Gaver, told her story about living with her disability on TEDxJacksonville.  Sara is an amazing and independent young lady who shared her thoughts on how she has been perceived during the course of her life based on her disability, when she should be perceived by her accomplishments, which include joining a sorority, becoming an active member of the Rotaract club, and joining three other organizations on campus.  You can hear Sara share her story as well as her solutions to change others perceptions of individuals with disabilities right here.
